A MARRIAGE IN THE LORD is a two part marriage preparation series. These sessions strengthen the practical skills needed for a lifelong happy, healthy and holy marriage.

Couples will:

  • Discuss positive communication skills, finances, families of origin, and ways to protect and empower their marriage.
  • Hear stories, presentations, and insights from experienced married couples.
  • Have time for private reflection and conversation throughout the day.
  • Learn the beauty of living the Catholic vision of marriage as a covenant for responsible parenthood, including a healthy option called Natural Family Planning (NFP).
  • Listen to committed Catholic couples (with a background in NFP) share scientific and medical research, personal stories, prayer 

Part I is a one-day program where you explore the relationship skills to nurture a lifelong commitment and hear presentations from experienced married couples who lead discussion on living the Sacrament of Marriage.

Part II is a two-hour session, held on a separate day, that examines the Church's teachings about the Sacrament of Marriage and responsible parenthood including a healthy option for a lifetime of love called "Natural Family Planning."

Part II can be taken before Part I.
