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, ON (address is in the footer of this website).
