Marriage PreparationWedding Rings

Couples planning to be married in the Catholic Church are required to attend a Marriage Preparation Course sponsored by a Catholic Church. St. John Bosco Parish offers a two day weekend course. This course is facilitated by our marriage preparation team members. Our goal is to provide a meaningful vision of Christian marriage and to provide an opportunity to engaged couples to explore topics of interest to further discern their basic readiness to accept the responsibilities of marriage.

Some topics of discussion include:

  • Communication
  • Finances
  • Sacrament of Marriage
  • Spirituality
  • Natural Family Planning
  • Parenting
  • Expectations/Extended Family
