In the Archdiocese of Boston, Marriage Preparation (also known as Pre-Cana), is divided into three phases. Phase I is an introductory session with the celebrating priest, deacon and/or certified pastoral associate. Phase II is an engaged couples workshop. Phase III is follow-up sessions with a minister.
Pre-Cana programs are available in many churches in the Archdiocese of Boston. For more information, please visit http://www.bostoncatholic.org/Offices-And-Services/Office-Detail.aspx?id=11654&pid=478.
