PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) — For the past few years, a Port Huron company has helped couples receive Catholic marriage preparation online.
Marriage Ministries was developed in collaboration with the Archdioceses of Detroit and Chicago and has served couples in those cities as well as in the United Kingdom, Singapore and many more locales.
On average, couples spend about 12 days going through the program. Marriage Ministries co-founder Matt Brooks says it allows couples to absorb and discuss the information more than the regular eight-hour seminar or retreat required of couples getting married in the Catholic Church.
Jennifer Schiller and Liam McCauley tell the Times Herald (http://bwne.ws/Wcf3VB) the course's online flexibility attracted them.
At the time, McCauley was living in Ireland, and Schiller was living in South Bend, Ind.
