We have now increased the in-person Marriage Preparation classes limit to twelve couples per session. However, we are still offering an online Marriage Preparation option. Feel free to choose the class and date that is best for you.

Pre-Cana is a One Day (Saturday: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM) or Two Evening (Weeknight: 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM) on-site experience for engaged couples to begin their formal marriage preparation process.
