   The FOCCUS Pre-Marital Inventory is part of the marriage preparation process for all engaged couples in the Diocese of Joliet.  Priests, deacons, and other parish staff members, as well as parish-approved and trained lay couples, may use FOCCUS with engaged couples.

   There will be a one-day training program for FOCCUS at the Blanchette Catholic Center on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  

   Individuals or couples will need to purchase the new Fourth Edition FOCCUS Facilitator Manual and REFOCCUS Manual for $60.  There will also be a $10.00 fee for the day, which includes lunch.  Pre-registration is required by October 18.  Please call the office at 815-838-5334 or register in the online form below.
