Marriage Preparation

Couples of any religious denomination benefit from attending the marriage preparation workshop. In the marriage preparation workshop you are given the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue as a couple regarding important issues that affect your relationship. Your involvement will help you affirm the commitment that you will be making to each other on your wedding day.

“A wedding is for a day….A marriage is for a lifetime.”

The marriage preparation workshop is a 1 1/2 day course held on a weekend. You will view presentations and participate in productive sessions with your spouse-to-be. At the end of the workshop, you will receive a certificate of participation.

Topics covered include:

  • Communication
  • Finances
  • Becoming Family
  • Sexuality and Intimacy
  • Sharing Your Faith
  • Family of Origin
