Our next Pre-Cana Day will be March 25, 2017.
This page focuses on the Pre-Cana ministry at St. John Chrysostom. For information on planning a wedding at St. John's, please click here.
Pre-Cana provides a marriage preparation program for those planning to marry in the Catholic Church. Members of the Pre-Cana team present the program, along with the parish pastor. The day-long program is offered twice a year.
The Pre-Cana team is made up of couples from the parish. Some couples speak at the program on topics related to married life, including communication, adjustments, finances, sexuality and spirituality. These couples share their own experiences in talks that are followed by discussions with the engaged couples.
Other married couples serve Pre-Cana by helping us plan and prepare for the day.
All couples are welcome and needed. No special training is required.
The Pre-Cana day is held twice a year on a Saturday, usually in October and March. One or two meetings are held prior to the day, and one follow-up meeting is held after the day.
