The program is presented by the archdiocesan Office of Family Ministries with a priest and trained volunteer couples. It begins with check-in at 1:15 p.m. and concludes at 6 p.m. on the Sundays listed above.

Also this year, a three-part Pre Cana Conference is scheduled on consecutive Thursdays with check-in at 6:15 p.m. on May 3, May 10 and May 17. Those sessions conclude at 9 p.m. Couples must attend all three programs to complete the course requirements.

Tobit Weekend retreats are scheduled at Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House on May 18-20, June 1-3, July 27-29 and Sept. 14-16.
