All couples getting married at St. Louise de Marillac Parish must participate in an approved Catholic Marriage Preparation Program, or Pre-Cana Program (in addition to their meetings with the parish priest or deacon), which should be scheduled to be completed 6 months prior to your wedding date.

Pre-Cana Program at St. Louise

This is a program designed to prepare couples for the Sacrament of Marriage. Pre-Cana gets its name from the wedding feast that Jesus attended in John’s gospel. Our program is staffed by one of the parish priests and a number of married couples from the parish. The program is designed to stimulate discussion between an engaged couple about subjects that may influence and enhance their marriage. Some time is spent in discussion with married couples who share their perspectives on married life. This program is meant to strengthen the couples’ commitment to the Sacrament of Marriage.

Our next class will be on September 15 and 16, 2017 (Friday and Saturday) in LeGras Parish Center, Lower Level. The cost is $75 per couple and all materials will be provided. The schedule is as follows:

Friday 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm, pizza served
Saturday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, breakfast and lunch served

Please contact Julie Cugini to sign up or to ask questions.
