ABOUT MARRIAGE PREPARATION
These programs fulfill part of the requirements for Marriage preparation that each engaged couple is required to complete before their wedding. Your pastor, pastoral associate, or deacon can best direct you in your planning.
Attending a diocesan approved sacramental marriage preparation retreat is a very important and enjoyable step in your full preparation. It will help you grow as a couple, especially in your
understanding of the promises you will make to each on the day that you are wed.
If attending one of these offered dates does not work for your schedule, a list of the retreats offered in our diocese can be found online at http://diolc.org/marriage/marriage-preparation/marriage-preparation-schedule/. You need to call or email the on-site contact for the program that you would like to attend. We recommend that you call or email as soon as possible to ensure that the location has a place for you.
