Marriage Preparation Classes

Married life can never be taken lightly. Couples intending to marry should work to develop a better understanding of all aspects of marriage. This includes communication, societal pressures, physiology, family planning, sexuality, spirituality, money management, and fidelity. The Diocese of Pittsburgh requires formal marriage instruction for all couples. Catholics and non-Catholics are both obligated to participate.

Engaged Encounter Weekend

The Engaged Encounter Weekend offers couples a unique opportunity to look at their commitment to each other in a deeper way as they prepare for marriage. It gives them the opportunity to focus exclusively on each other in peaceful surroundings, free from the pressure and distractions of the outside world.

Though Catholic in origin, this experience is open to any engaged couple wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together. The Weekend is an in-depth, private, personal, marriage preparation experience within the context of Catholic faith and values.
