Preparing for a lifetime of married love, rather than just for the wedding day, is the focus of the Pre-Cana experience. The spacious grounds, as well as the historic nature of Old St. Patrick Church, provide the ideal setting to focus on your lifetime together.

Couples arrive for the Pre-Cana day arrive in time to participate in the 8:15 AM Sunday Mass at St. Patrick Parish; the events of the day begin following Mass and lasts through the later afternoon. The day will include prayer, presentations, couple sharing (the most important part of the day), and dinner.  Topics discussed during the day include Communication, Sexuality, Everyday Living, and the Sacrament of Marriage. 

The dress is casual.

The cost for the day is $75 per couple.  To register, please CLICK HERE to download the PDF registration form .  Pre-Cana days fill quickly, please register early; registrations are handled on a first received basis.

This program satisfies the requirements for marriage preparation as stipulated by the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.  You will receive a certificate at the end of the day.
