of PREPARE/ENRICH Customized
Since the PREPARE/ENRICH inventories were first released over 30 years ago,
Catholic clergy have used the premarital inventory with engaged couples and
the marital inventory with married couples. When the latest revision of PREPARE/ENRICH
was created, there was a unique opportunity to develop the most advanced Catholic
premarital inventory in the world. The goal was to design a customized tool that was
easy to use, technologically refined, and specifically reflected the teaching and
values of the Catholic Church. This goal has been achieved
with the Catholic Version of PREPARE/ENRICH Customized.
"The Marriage Preparation Committee evaluated several of the inventories available and found
the PREPARE/ENRICH Customized Version, to be the most comprehensive. Also it is the only
inventory which comes with a workbook with 24 exercises for the engaged couples. In 2007,
a group of clergy and key lay people of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe met with the staff of
PREPARE/ENRICH and helped to develop the Catholic version of the customized inventory.
So it is ideal to use it for marriage preparation in our parishes." — Most Reverend Michael J. Sheehan, Archbishop of Santa Fe
