Marriage Care provides a Preparing Together for Couples Marrying in the Catholic Church course. The course is designed to complement the preparation you may receive within your local place of worship, in addition to the material Marriage Care shares with you about building and sustaining relationships. The course is usually on Saturdays or over a series of evenings. It is enjoyable, revealing and rewarding.
During the coronavirus pandemic Marriage Care has moved all its face-to-face services to online alternatives using secure webcam and video conferencing technology – just like having face-to-face support, except you talk to a trained counsellor or marriage preparation facilitator online using a secure video link, similar to Skype or FaceTime.
