Sacramental Marriage is not just a contract but the holy vocation of Christian life that all Christians need to embrace and follow. According to Catholic marriage law, "A valid and consummated marriage of baptized persons cannot be dissolved by any human authority or any cause other than the death of one of the persons." For this reason, young men and women are encouraged to participate in the classes offered by the Archdiocesan Office that will help them to plan their lifetime commitment meaningfully and right.

These classes, called "Marriage - Journey of Faith" are being offered on Sundays and during week, Monday through Friday.
Before making any reservation for Pre-cana or Engaged Encounter classes, the coupe must make an initial contact with the parish priest to learn about the sacramental marriage requirements and assure the date of their wedding.
The Office of Family Life offers also a special program, called "Retrouvaille" to help hurting couples to heal their wounds and renew their love and commitment for one another.
