Catholic Marriage Education Services provides programs to prepare couples for marriage and provides ongoing marriage education.
All of our Marriage Preparation courses provide you with an opportunity to reflect on your relationship and identify your strengths and challenges, develop skills and gain valuable insight into:
- The Nature of Commitment
- Expectations of Marriage
- Family Influences
- Intimate Communication
- Managing Conflict
- and more ...
Preparation is a necessary part of every important thing we do, and marriage is no different. Much time and effort will usually go toward the planning and organising of the wedding day, and so too some preparation for the lifetime of marriage that comes after the wedding is a useful and important part of being engaged.
It is a requirement that all couples who wish to marry in the Catholic Church attend some preparation. For many this will include some of the services offered by us at Catholic Marriage Education Services. Of course, attending one of the pre-marriage courses cannot replace meeting with the priest or deacon, which forms part of the preparation process.
NOTE: If either of you have been MARRIED BEFORE it is a requirement of the Archdiocese that you attend an interview with a counsellor before attending a course. At the interview the counselor will discuss with you the best course to suit your situation. Please ring (08) 9241 5000 to make an appointment prior to enrolling in a course.
It is also true to say that maintenance and renewal are part of the important things in life and marriage is one of the very important things. Catholic Marriage Education Services provide a variety of Marriage Enrichment and education events which give couples the chance to learn new skills, a chance to refocus on the each other and the relationship and a chance to relax and talk over their issues without distractions.
Our Courses include:
- Couple Communication
- The Marriage Course (Video Series)
- Building Better Family
- Survival Skills for Healthy Families
