Marriage Preparation

Marriage preparation courses are designed to nourish the love relationship you share as a couple. Commitment, Communication and Conflict Resolution: these are the three top attributes of couples married happily for more than 25 years. The function of marriage preparation is to provide you with the tools that will help you live your marriage with all three of these components being strong and healthy.

The course, led by married facilitating couples, covers a variety of topics including sacramentality of marriage, effective communication, conflict resolution, intimacy and sexuality in marriage, finances and family of origin. Much of the course time is spent with the two of you talking to each other. This is a chance to move away from the stress of the wedding plans and learn or freshen up the skills you will need for a happy marriage.

Course Information

First Contact: Many parishes offer Marriage Preparation Courses as part of their marriage ministry. Please check with the parish where you will be married to see if they have a program available. If no parish program is available, or you are unable to make the date of the parish program where you will marry you can register on line for a Diocesan Marriage Preparation.

Courses run on Friday evenings (approximately 7:00–9:30 pm) and Saturday (approximately 9 am–5 pm).

Cost: $150.00 per couple (includes course materials, snacks and lunch Saturday).  Please note CANCELLATION refunds are subject to a $25.00 administration fee.
