Marriage Preparation Program for Engaged Couples

Congratulations on your engagement!

 

Thank you for your interest in our marriage preparation programs. The pandemic has surely presented new obstacles and challenges as you prepare for your marriage. We hope that these can become building blocks that will help to form a strong foundation for your life together. We have adapted our course and taken it online to continue to our mission of preparing couples for marriage in the Catholic Church during the pandemic. All courses will be offered online until further notice. We are excited to get to know you and to help prepare you for your marriage! For more information, please contact the Centre for Marriage, Life and Family by email at centredmvf@diocesemontreal.org

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.
