About the Programs:

El Plan de Dios para un Matrimonio Llena de Alegría

¡Preparación matrimonial en español!

One in Christ

This program is seminar-based marriage preparation that takes place over the course of one weekend with a one-day follow-up session that includes a medical/NFP panel for Q&A. One in Christ (OIC) provides a comprehensive approach to marriage preparation. Along with use of clergy, all witnessing married couples sign an Oath to the Fidelity to the Magisterium and the program includes a required course in NFP. OIC offers a Spanish option.

Pre-Cana Conference

This workshop uses the program from Ascension Press, God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage with two components:

1. Virtue-based life skills program that provides the “know-how” and the habits that build up a lifelong, joy-filled marriage. This program is a companion program to God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage.

2. The God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage presents couples with the teachings on Sacramentality and Sexuality of marriage, rooted in St. Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.

Tobit Retreat

The Tobit Marriage Preparation Weekend was designed and started in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis in 1974. This weekend offers time away from the tensions and demands of daily life to relax in a place of beauty and peacefulness. It gives couples a unique opportunity to grow in the knowledge and love of one another while focusing on couple communication in all aspects of the marriage relationship. A teaching Mass is included during the retreat.
