Catholic Marriage P.R.E.P.

Catholic Marriage PREP (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program) aims at the prevention of risky language and behaviors that damage or prevent fruitful communication. The program seeks to enhance a couple's relationship by teaching effective communication skills and by clarifying the essential components of a healthy Christian marriage.

Marriage PREP is formatted for second marriage couples, couples advanced in age, and civilly married couples with children who are preparing for marriage in the Church. An Engaged Encounter weekend may be attended instead by young couples early in their relationship. Marriage Encounter may be selected as a substitute for couples that have been in a long-term civil marriage.
