Dear Engaged Couple,
Welcome and congratulations on your decision to marry in the Church!
- BE SURE TO MEET WITH YOUR PRIEST OR DEACON before taking any other steps.
- FULLY ENGAGED marriage inventory and mentoring:
Here at Church of the Resurrection we are offering a program called "Fully Engaged" which follows up on your marriage inventory check list by assigning a mentor couple to assist you in exploring your answers and what the Catholic Church says about marriage.
We invite you to register for Pre-Cana or for Engaged Encounter through the diocesan website: http://www.colsdioc.org/Offices/DeptforSpiritualLifeandParishMinistry/MarriageandFamilyLifeOffice/MarriagePreparation.aspx
The Pre-Cana is scheduled on Friday and Saturday. The Friday evening sessions are “Living God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage” and Saturday sessions are “God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage”
A team of married couples will share some of their experiences in Christian marriage with you. Group presentations are followed by “couple time” for each of you to complete a short activity and couple discussion privately with your partner.
After your first meeting with either Fr. Jim or Deacon Kevin or other priest or deacon that will witness your marriage ceremony, you may contact John and Marise Petry for Pre-Cana help or registration details and weekend dates at the following: email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 614-284-8500. This contact information can be found on www.cotrna.org under the heading “Groups” scroll down and click on “Pre-Cana”.
We look forward to meeting each of you soon.
John and Marise
and The Church of the Resurrection Marriage Preparation Team
