Witness to Love Diocesan Training
Mentor couples play a vital role in the marriage formation process for engaged and newlywed couples. In the Diocese of Tyler, Witness to Love is the mentor couple program we are using as a major part of our marriage formation renewal.
The Witness to Love Diocesan Training on Saturday, January 19th 9:00 am-3:00 pm is for all priests, deacons, and marriage formation leaders in the Diocese of Tyler. This training is for parishes who are starting Witness to Love for the first time and is also a “refresher” opportunity for those who went through the Live Training last January or completed their training online.
Witness to Love is constantly enhancing their materials to benefit the engaged and mentor couples going through the formation process. This Live Training event with co-founders Ryan and Mary Rose Verret is an excellent opportunity to learn how we can better evangelize our couples and transform our parish communities using this program.
The English Training will be on Saturday, January 19th 9am-3pm followed by a breakout session for bilingual marriage formation leaders from 3:15-4:15pm at the Cathedral Center. A Spanish Training Session will be held on Sunday, January 20th 3pm-6pm in the St. Paul Meeting Room at the Diocese of Tyler chancery office. Parish leaders and clergy who would like to attend both days will only need to pay one registration fee.
English Session Cost
For clergy and marriage formation leaders who do not yet own the Witness to Love training materials, the price is $65 per individual or $75 per married couple.
For those that would like to attend this training as a “refresher” and already own the WTL materials, the cost is $15 per individual or $25 per married couple.
Lunch will be provided.
Please keep in mind that parishes do not need to send mentor couples to this training since engaged couples are being invited to choose their own mentors. Instead, pastors should send the people from their marriage formation teams who are going to assist the priests in implementing this program in the parish.
Please register for this Training event by January 7th to give us time to order the materials needed for this training.
