3 common questions about online marriage prep…. In Spanish!

1. How does the bilingual course work?

We offer online marriage prep for bilingual couples when one has difficulties reading and/or writing in English. 

The couple must still be able to communicate verbally well to exchange their answers and discuss the different topics together (via Skype, WhatsApp, email or phone if they live far from each other). The couple will submit only one form each time, in the primary language they will choose (English or Spanish).

They will work with an instructor couple who will be working with them and will send the corresponding links to the forms in English and Spanish to facilitate understanding.

However, the engaged couple, will submit only one form, either in English or Spanish each time. The party who is most fluent in the primary language chosen will be in charge of filling out the online worksheets with the couple's common work, adding answers in the other language when/if necessary. The instructor couple will then upload the answer key in the primary language chosen, and will add comments in the other language when/if needed.

2. Our parish is located in a rural area and we have a big population of Spanish speaking people working in the fields. Some of them cannot read and write. Is CMP also good for them? How can they complete your course to prepare for the sacrament of matrimony?

We have a couple of suggestions:

They can ask their grownup children, close friend (comadre, compadre) or relative for help. This person will help them by reading and typing the engaged couple's answers into the system and read the revision of their work that their instructor couple will put together especially for them.

If that is not an option, the parish could find a Spanish speaking volunteer to help this couple. This second option is great for building up a parish community where service and love to the other is expressed in actions, and provides a great opportunity to start a deep and long-lasting friendship!

3. Does your course include N.F.P. teaching?

Our Marriage Prep course covers the theology behind NFP and explains why contraception is a grave sin. The course does NOT include an actual NFP training. We do offer information on

This is through the Couple-to-Couple League, and they offer different options in English and Spanish.

During the course, we also give several NFP training options, and a comparison chart of the different methods.

In our mission statement at we say: “Agape Catholic Marriage Preparation invites couples to a deeper relationship with each other and with Christ, one couple at a time.  Online, on-demand instruction rooted in Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, combined with personalized mentoring from a trained married couple, builds a foundation for a strong, healthy, Christ-centered marriage between a man and a woman.”  Who does that best serve?   From the very inception of serving military couples has always been on our hearts, even offering a military discount.

Wow!!!  Yes, that is the correct word to begin this blog post!  I think I am still in shock!  On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our country just experienced the overturning of an almost 50-year-old law regarding abortion.  Roe vs. Wade was overturned!
