The St. Matthew Pre-Cana/Marriage Prepartion Team
“To live faithfully in a marriage requires humility, trust, compromise, communication, and a sense of humor.” (Follow the Way of Love, USCCB)
“Love does not consist of gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.” (Antoine De Saint-Exuprey)
Marriage Prep sessions are presented twice a year by a team of volunteer married couples who help prepare engaged couples for the sacrament of Matrimony by sharing their faith and life experiences with the intention of enabling engaged couples to become more aware of their sacramental responsibilities in marriage.
“Love is not simply a feeling, but a decision.” (Marriage Encounter Principle)
“A successful marriage is one in which you fall in love many times – always with the same person.” (D. W. McLaughlin)
Engaged couples may register for the St. Matthew Marriage Preparation program by contacting Jule Graham 732-748-2166. Sessions are usually held in April & September.
All Diocese of Metuchen sessions can be found at: http://www.diometuchen.org/deptsministries/family-life/marriage-preparation/
If you have been married three or more years in a Catholic ceremony and are practicing Catholics, consider becoming a Marriage Prep Team couple. You and your spouse will work with engaged couples preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage. We enjoy a true team spirit and in addition to the two sessions, we meet informally at times to bond and discuss improving our ministry.
For information, please contact Sue or Dan Kovach by phone at 732-287-9027 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I once thought marriage took just two to make a go. But I am convinced it takes the Lord also. And not one marriage fails where Christ is asked to enter. As lovers come together with Jesus Christ at the center; in homes where Christ is first it is obvious to see, those unions really work, for Marriage still takes Three” (Author Unknown)
