The Three to Get Married course satisfies the Pre-Cana requirement for those in the Archdiocese of New York and others by pastoral permission. It is suggested that you register at least 6 months before your wedding. Overnight accommodations are not included.

As you plan your wedding take a weekend for yourselves to plan your marriage. Our program is given by qualified professionals, priests, therapists, and volunteer lay couples. It extends over one weekend to provide each couple with a reflective and in-depth preparation for a joyful marriage and for love that not only lasts but grows stronger year after year.

Groups are kept small to foster intimacy, lively discussion, and personal attention. A Legionary of Christ priest oversees the program and gives important conferences on the Sacrament of Marriage and the nature of marital love. He also attends many of the sessions with the couples to encourage dialogue and to open opportunities for counseling, spiritual direction, and Confession.
