Marriage preparation Sessions

Marriage preparation in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg is generally offered in two different formats:

  • A group session – offered on weekends or evenings in a parish
  • Mentorship – engaged couple meets with a sponsor couple at a mutually convenient time

In some cases other options are possible.  Check with the pastor or other designated person in the parish where you will be married to clarify acceptable options.
