FOCCUS is an acronym for “Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding, and Study”. The FOCCUS instrument is a self-diagnostic tool designed to help engaged couples learn more about themselves and their unique relationship. It provides individualized couple feedback on where each partner stands in regard to areas important to marriage. The engaged couple meets with the FOCCUS leaders (a married couple) a minimum of two times prior to the marriage ceremony.

FOCCUS ministry couples are trained to administer the FOCCUS instrument and help the engaged read and interpret the results. It is an important part of preparing for marriage and is mandatory for couples being married at Saint Mary of the Annunciation.
