Getting married? A little preparation can make a big difference.
If you are thinking of getting married our specially designed, thought-provoking and fun marriage preparation courses will equip you with insights and know-how, clarity and confidence to avoid the pitfalls and build the best possible future together.
We offer two options, both delivering excellent but different experiences:
FOCCUS – this is a bespoke, questionnaire-based exploration of your unique relationship, provided for individual couples over 2-6 one-hour sessions; just the two of you and a skilled facilitator using a secure video link (similar to Skype or FaceTime). This resource was developed by FOCCUS Inc., an apostolate of the Archdiocese of Omaha, and is suitable for couples planning to marry in the Catholic Church.
Coming soon! Preparing Together Online: – Bookings available from September 2020. This is an interactive, skills-oriented, online group course delivered over 3 webinar style sessions; suitable for couples planning to marry in the Catholic Church.
Preparing Together: – Available from January 2021 only. This is a one day, skills-oriented, group course and is suitable for couples planning to marry in the Catholic Church.
Completion of either FOCCUS or Preparing Together will provide the Certificate of Attendance required by most local parishes. If you are marrying in a Polish church please check with your priest that these courses meet their requirements.
Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate babies or children at either type of course.
If you have any questions please contact the Appointments Service on 0800 389 3801.
