Marriage Preparation Program

This program is for engaged couples preparing for marriage.  St. Ferdinand Parish offers an alternative to Pre-Cana Conferences and Engaged Encounter Weekends; it is the "Today and all the Days of Your Life" Marriage Preparation Program.  Our purpose is to prepare couples in our homes for the living of their Sacrament of Matrimony.  Our goal is to establish priorities and prepare the couples to protect and nourish their sacramental love.  Our method is: a married couple, already living the Sacrament of Matrimony, shares specific areas of their marriage with the engaged couple.  Each young couple is a new experience for us.  The several married couples involved in this program share the same feeling: we receive much more than we give.  If you are a married couple, living your sacrament and would like to share your experiences of that sacrament, please call.
