Marriage Preparation Retreats
for Couples Preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage
Various in-person marriage preparation retreats are available to couples who are preparing to be married in the Catholic Church. These retreats fulfill the requirement of the Archdiocese that all couples preparing to be married in the Church take an approved marriage preparation course.
These weekend-long retreats are all held at the Marriages for Mary retreat house in Metcalfe, Ontario, just outside of Ottawa (address and map are in the footer of this website).
For a list of dates and times for the marriage preparation retreats, please see the "What We Offer" menu and select "Marriage Preparation".
