Marriage Preparation Weekend
In partnership with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary, Catholic Family Service (CFS) offers a Marriage Preparation Weekend to couples preparing for the sacrament of marriage. The word sacrament is defined as “a sign of the sacred”, which means that couples are encouraged to model their marriage on Christ’s love. Over the course of a weekend, participants take a time-out from wedding planning to developing practical tools that will create a lifelong, happy marriage, including:
- understanding marriage as a sacrament and spirituality in marriage;
- enhancing communication and managing conflict;
- identifying shared and non-shared values, and negotiating differences; and
- managing finances as a married couple.
“I’m happy we had the time to sit down together and think about what’s ahead. We understand our faith on a deeper level.” – Marriage Preparation Weekend participant
The Marriage Preparation Weekend is led by non-judgemental, professional facilitators who are well-versed in their areas of expertise. The program is grounded in Catholic values and is open to couples of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
