Preparation for the reception of the Sacrament of Matrimony includes the couple’s participation in a Marriage Preparation program. During your meeting with the pastor, he will explain the options that are open to you which include a parish based program and an Archdiocesan program. St. Eugene Parish is happy to offer a 3rd option, a one on one approach.

A seven week program entitled Preparing to Live in Love consists of engaged couples meeting at the home of a married couple. These sessions are scheduled at the convenience of the engaged couples and the married couple. This program combines the benefits of a personal mentor with a comprehensive and experiential marriage preparation course based on Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. Each session is packed with insights from Catholic theology and married experience, including practical life skills, tools, principles and strategies while offering an authentic witness of a married couple sincerely living in love in a sacramental marriage.
