The Diocese of Victoria has released the schedule for Marriage Preparation courses for 2014 – 2015. Click here to download the brochure.


The course will be facilitated by clergy with a team of couples that have experienced the joys and challenges of married life and raising children. Along with the team, you will get to know other couples preparing for marriage in the Catholic Church.

The primary goal of the course is to increase your knowledge of this Sacrament and deepen your love for each other. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, while respecting couples’ privacy.

The course consists of presentations on relevant subjects and couple discussion time, with refreshment breaks for the community.


$150 fee/couple must be enclosed with your registration form (click here to download the brochure/registration form). Please make cheques payable to St. Andrew’s Cathedral.
