Two Become One: Remarriage Program

Two Become One: Embracing the Sacrament in Remarriage is a day-long marriage preparation program designed for engaged couples when one or both have previously been married. Through the witness of married couples who have experienced remarriage and a team priest, the program covers topics including Marriage as a Sacrament, Barriers to a Successful Remarriage, Communication, Conflict Resolution, Finances, Marital Intimacy, Trusting Together in God, and an optional segment on Stepfamilies. Each topic is explored through the lens of the unique circumstances of remarriage. A vigil Mass is also included in the day.
