Engaged Couple Seminars

“Marriage preparation should be a kind of ‘initiation’ to the sacrament of matrimony, providing couples with the help they need to receive the sacrament worthily and to make a solid beginning of life as a family. – Pope Francis, Amoris Laetitia, no. 207.

Engaged Couple Seminars in the Diocese of Manchester strives to support a strong formation for the Sacrament of Matrimony, building on the formation an engaged couple receives at their home parish.
