Pre-sessions first step in marriage preparation

The ring is on the finger and wedding plans are under way, but if a couple is planning to marry in one of the Catholic churches in the Archdiocese of Omaha, they first need to attend a Marriage Preparation Pre-session.

At the meetings, which are offered through various parishes in the archdiocese, couples will learn about the basics of the marriage preparation process and choose one of two educational programs.

Couples also will complete a FOCCUS inventory, which will be used to guide discussion during meetings with a priest, deacon or lay facilitator. They also will hear a talk on couple communication and watch a video on natural family planning.

No advance reservations are required. The cost to attend is $85 per couple.
