Pre-Cana is a one day experience to prepare engaged couples to begin their formal marriage preparation process. The class includes a series of talks and activities on topics such as: marriage as a Sacrament, the vows, sexuality in the marriage, natural family planning, and more.


Classes are on Saturdays from 9 AM to 4:30 PM, with at least an hour break for lunch. Please arrive no later than 8:45 AM, as we begin class at 9 AM sharp.

There is a $50 per couple registration fee.  We will collect the registration fee the morning of the conference.  This needs to be in the form of a check or cash.  Please make checks payable to Pre-Cana.
