Congratulations on your engagement!
Thank you for your interest in a Marriage Preparation Program sponsored by the Diocese of Palm Beach. This program provides couples contemplating marriage the opportunity to reflect on the meaning of marriage and on the influence that spirituality, communication, finances, sexuality and parenthood will have on their marriage. This program incorporates Saint John Paul II's revolutionary insights found in his Theology of the Body teachings and helps couples fully embrace God's glorious plan for their marriage.

Comments from recent attendees:
“The discussion of prayer in our marriage was the most helpful and opened a door that my future wife and I will be able to do for the rest of our lives.”
“We have been married civilly for a year and we have found a whole new approach to marriage moving forward.”
“We truly enjoyed the retreat, found it extremely positive and beneficial, would/will highly recommend! Every speaker was relatable, energetic and gave amazing insight on the topics discussed, things to be aware of, resolution methods, etc. We truly enjoyed ourselves and think this is an amazing addition with the Catholic Church prior to getting married.”
