FOCCUS Self-Assessment Tool

FOCCUS (Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding, and Study) is a self-assessment tool to help you learn more about yourself and your future spouse. It’s not a test! It just helps you discover, share, and discuss how you think and feel about the most important aspects of your future life together, from family and children to finances and faith. Through a guided discussion, you’ll find out where you agree and disagree and why.

If you attend a parish-based program or an Engaged Encounter weekend where FOCCUS is not offered, you must register for FOCCUS online and a follow up discussion with a facilitator ($50.00 non-refundable fee).

If you attend our diocesan marriage preparation program, you will take FOCCUS online, but your follow up discussion will take place during the marriage preparation sessions. You do not need to register for a FOCCUS follow up discussion if you register to participate in a diocesan marriage preparation session. We’ll contact you with instructions on how to take FOCCUS online as soon as we receive your registration and payment. You can take it as soon as you receive your username and password.
