Preparing for Marriage

A Vocation to Faithful, Life-giving Love

Many of us invest years of training to prepare for our career. How much formal training do we receive for something for more important than a career - our marriage?
At St Cecilia, we give you the best training we can provide in these short months before your marriage begins, so that you can be prepared to succeed in building a marriage together that gets more beautiful and enjoyable every year!
