In March, we cancelled all marriage preparation programs in response to the request for social distancing, and asked priests and deacons to meet with engaged couples individually to address the marriage preparation requirements, including Pre-Cana. As we prepare to resume public Masses, the Office for Marriage and Family Ministry offers the following guidelines for immediate preparation of engaged couples. These are temporary recommendations. We will continue to re-evaluate as everything progresses.
Marriage preparation Pre-Cana Days are offered at several parishes and retreat centers for engaged couples who are marrying for the first time.
In addition to the Parish or Retreat Center Pre-Cana Day, the diocesan Pre-Cana requirement may also be fulfilled by attending a PREP or Cana II Day.
Parishes throughout the diocese may opt to advertise their retreat on our website. If you would like for us to share your parish's event on our website, please submit the requested information via the form below.
