  Marriage Ceremony Preparation

Volunteer couples conduct wedding rehearsals, which are usually held early Friday evening.   


Pre-Cana Team

Twice each year, married couples from Saint Helen's meet with engaged couples to discuss the many areas of importance in creating a loving, Catholic marriage.   Through three separate, short meetings during one week, the engaged couples hear different talks from the married couples on the experience of marriage. The married couples are then grouped with 3 or 4 engaged couples for further discussion. The program includes a visit to the married couple's home and concludes with a Mass at Saint Helen's which focuses on the Sacrament of Marriage.  Contact Tom and Ann Madaras   This email address is being protected from spambots.
