Catechumenal Pathways for Married Life


“Catechumenal itineraries for married life. Pastoral guidelines for particular Churches" is an initiative of the "Amoris Laetitia Family Year" and responds to the Holy Father's desire to offer new paths for preparation for the sacrament of marriage.
The Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life has prepared a document that offers pastors, spouses and all those who work in family ministry a renewed vision and methodology of preparation for the sacrament of marriage and all married life that includes all the stages of the sacramental journey: the times of preparation for marriage, its celebration and the years that follow, especially when spouses might go through crises and moments of discouragement.
"The concern of the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life", commented Card. Kevin Farrell, Prefect, "is to transmit to bishops, family pastoral workers and formators, the Holy Father's invitation to seriously rethink marriage preparation as a continuous accompaniment before and after the sacramental rite. A competent and concrete closeness, made up of bonds between families that support each other."
