Marriage Preparation Program
for Engaged Couples
2019 – 2020

“More than ever necessary in our times is preparation of young people for marriage and family life…The Church must therefore promote better and more intensive programs of marriage preparation…”
– Familiaris Consortio #66

The decision to marry is one of the most important decisions that anyone can make. Usually, couples marry because they have fallen in love, but learning to love, as opposed to being in love, takes a lifetime. Couples need instruction and practice in living skills – skills that are learned rather than intuitive. This marriage preparation program will provide couples with the opportunity to practice some of the skills necessary to have a successful marriage.
