before the date you wish to marry.
Please note: If either of you has had a previous marriage
(even if your previous spouse has died, or the marriage did not take place in the Catholic Church)

You can register for a pre-marriage course when you meet with your pastor. For further information or phone the Family Ministry Office

The Office for Evangelization and Catechesis (OEC) and the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) have developed a web-based video resource to assist with the study of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
The launch of this web-based video resource provides reflection and study designed to be used by individuals in their homes, or groups in parish or diocesan setting. It is hoped that it will provide further opportunity for ongoing individual and communal reflection on “the joy of love”.
Pope Francis invites us to study the document carefully when he says, “…I do not recommend a rushed reading of the text. The greatest benefit, for families themselves and for those engaged in the family apostolate, will come if each part is read patiently and carefully, or if attention is paid to the parts dealing with their specific needs”
If you would like to improve your marriage, deepen your love, live more happily together, and draw closer to each other, the Marriage Encounter program can help. Marriage Encounter is an experience which focusses on communication between husband and wife. It is an opportunity to spend a weekend together away from the distractions and the tensions of everyday life and to concentrate on each other as a couple. Information about Marriage Encounter can be found at www.wwme.org.
