Links and Resources for Marriage Week

We are very fortunate, as Catholics, to be able to call on the saints to inspire us in all our joys and celebrations - not to mention our trials and tribulations. Here we also have links to organisations that promote Catholic marriage.

Marriage Preparation

Getting married? A little preparation can make a big difference.

Most of the organisations listed here provide marriage preparation courses but if you’re thinking of getting married, the best thing to do is contact your local Parish Priest for guidance and advice. He will advise appropriate steps and a marriage preparation course.

You can also visit your Diocesan Marriage and Family Life coordinator for further details on courses.
