Description:  Part of the Diocesan preparation for marriage is a Pre-Cana course.  One of the ways to meet this requirement is five 1-2 hour sessions with a couple here in the parish.  This is a course in communication between the newly engaged couple and a married couple to help guide them through these sessions covering a variety of subjects that are important within a marriage.  There is a text to help.

More About the Ministry


Needs/Opportunities:  The need is a willingness to help prepare couples for marriage.  This course also provides the married couple an opportunity to review their own marriage, sharing some of the positive techniques of communication you have learned over the years.


Commitment required:  There are few marriages at St. Maurice.  You may have to prepare one couple per year, rarely more.  The session times you arrange directly with the Pre-Cana couple.
