Pre Cana Program
When an engaged couple plans to be married in the Roman Catholic Church, the Church requires them to take part in a marriage preparation program known as Pre-Cana. Pre-Cana classes prepare engaged Catholic couples for marriage by presenting a variety of topics for reflection and discussion.
Pre-Cana classes are typically led by married couples from the parish who volunteer for the duty. These couples are trained by the Diocese and present information about everything from what it means to receive the sacrament (or rite) of marriage to sexuality, money management, conflict resolution, natural family planning and other topics involving faith and day-to-day living.
The goals of Pre-Cana include both helping the couple understand how to keep their faith at the center of their marriage and preparing them for the ups and downs of marriage to keep it strong over time.
The Diocese of Trenton has offered to come to St. Theresa’s and train couples in hopes of starting a Pre-Cana Program here at our Parish. The training could be offered either on a Saturday (all day) or two consecutive evening sessions.
If you think you may be interested in training & perhaps becoming part of our team, please call Cathy at 609-296-2504 Ext. 22. We are in dire need of more Pre-Cana Programs in our Diocese so please prayerfully consider if this is something you may be called to do at this time.
