Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria: Marriage Preparation Course - May 2020

Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria: Marriage Preparation Course - May 2020

The course will be facilitated by an instructor, along with a team of couples that have experienced the joys and challenges of married life and raising children. Along with the team, you will get to know other couples preparing for marriage in the Catholic Church.

The primary goal of the course is to increase your knowledge of this sacrament and deepen your love for each other. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, while respecting couples’ privacy. Non-Catholics are most welcome, as are couples not yet engaged, but exploring marriage.

The course consists of presentations on relevant subjects and couple discussion time, with generous refreshment breaks for the community.

From Pope Francis’ February 20, 2014 Remarks to the Extraordinary Consistory of Cardinals:

We will reflect in particular on the family, which is the fundamental cell of society. From the beginning the
Creator blessed man and woman so that they might be fruitful and multiply, and so the family then is an image of
the Triune God in the world.

Our reflections must keep before us the beauty of the family and marriage, the greatness of this human reality
which is so simple and yet so rich, consisting of joys and hopes, of struggles and sufferings, as is the whole of life.
We will seek to deepen the theology of the family and discern the pastoral practices which our present situation
requires. We are called to acknowledge how beautiful, true and good it is to start a family, to be a family today;
and how indispensable the family is for the life of the world and for the future of humanity. We are called to
make known God’s magnificent plan for the family and to help spouses joyfully experience this plan in their lives, as we accompany them amidst so many difficulties.
