As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are facilitating our marriage preparation program online through ZOOM. There is no need to sign up in the area you live, please register on this page. All programs for the fall sessions will be in-person 

Materials for the course will be mailed to the address provided when you register online.


Course Hours:

Friday Evening: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

(Facilitators will be available at 6:45 p.m. to allow you into the session)

Saturday: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

(A 45-60 minute break for lunch will occur around noon) 

A Zoom Invitation, which will provide access to the course, will be sent to the e-mail address provided at the time of registration; it will be sent on the Thursday before your scheduled course.


You will use the link in the e-mail to access the online programming.


If your wedding had taken place during the COVID-19 shut down of our courses, we strongly encourage you to book a course in one of the other available programs, since they are proven to have a positive long term impact on marriages. 


If you have questions about any of this, please contact Teresa Hartnett, Director of the Family Ministry Office, at

Marriage Preparation

Congratulations to both of you as you enter into the beautiful vocation of marriage. With God at your side you will be starting on a lifetime journey of love.

Love by its very nature requires a giving and receiving by each person in relationship and marriage requires this in an on-going and lasting way.

We want to help you prepare for your lifelong, successful marriage.  Any of the programs below will meet  your requirement for marriage preparation, so you can feel free to sign up for whatever programs works best for you as a couple. 

Once you have met with your parish priest, be sure to register for your Hamilton Marriage PreparationWaterloo Marriage Preparation, Bruce-Grey Marriage PreparationCatholic Engaged Encounter or Remarriage course as classes fill up quickly. It is best to take the course at least six months before your wedding.
