The Three to Get Married course satisfies the Pre-Cana requirements for those in the Archdiocese of New York and others by pastoral permission.

As you plan your wedding take a weekend for yourselves to plan your marriage. Our day program is given by qualified professionals, priests, therapists and volunteer lay couples. It extends over one weekend to provide each couple with a reflective and in-depth preparation for a joyful marriage and for love that not only lasts but grows stronger year after year.

Groups are kept small to foster intimacy, lively discussion and personal attention.
