If you’re planning to get married in the Catholic Church, congratulations! The paperwork for your marriage is prepared in the country where you live. Marriage Preparation may be done elsewhere — but the International Parish offers courses 3 times per year, and all couples are welcome to participate.
Our next Marriage Preparation Day will be on Saturday, October 15, from 10:00 – 16:00, in the meeting room at St Alphonse This course is for couples preparing for marriage: it’s not about preparing for the ceremony itself, but for the rest of married life together. These days have been both popular and highly rated; input is given by trained Marriage Preparation presenters, and couples have an opportunity also to share their own experience of life together.
Exceptionally (due to scheduling issues, for example) you can take the course after your church wedding. If you wish to register for the October date, please contact me and I will subscribe you. To cover costs, we ask €75 from each couple; if this is beyond your means, no problem — again, just get in touch. Refreshments and a sandwich lunch are provided.
Our October course will be presented by Kit and Caroline Dollard who work both for the diocese of Middlesbrough and the Abbey of Ampleforth in the UK.
