Catholic Marriage Prep Course

The Catholic Marriage Prep pre-Cana Course is written for Roman Catholic couples and meets the pre-Cana requirement of the church for marriage preparation. In addition to the ten guided conversations and video teaching sessions, you will be able to listen to a presentation by Father Tom Walker on the “Sacrament of Marriage” which was filmed during an actual couples retreat. You’ll also meet a couple who has practiced “Natural Family Planning” and will introduce you to how this method has become an integral part of their love and family.

Many priests now offer the online Catholic Marriage Prep Course to couples to meet the church’s requirement for marriage preparation, so ask your priest if this is an option for you. And if it would be helpful, contact Rev. Dr. Frank Nelson to ask if he would contact your priest for you.
