Pre Cana


Pre-marriage preparation includes a program that offers you the time and setting to consider together your life as a married couple. A number of programs are available to you.  Popular programs include Discovery Weekend, Engaged Encounter, and the Parish Pre-Cana or Archdiocesan Pre-Cana.  These programs are approved by the Archdiocese and fulfill the recommendation for pre-marriage preparation required by the Archdiocese.  Arrangements for any of the programs are the responsibility of the couple.  Reservations are required for all programs.

If our dates do not fit in your schedule, please contact other parishes to check for availability or use the Archidosan Pre-Cana.


PreCana is held here in the Rectory from 10 am until 6 pm, concluding after our Saturday evening 5:00 pm Mass. Lunch is served during the session.

Our next PreCana sessions will be:

          Saturday, January 26th, 2019

          Saturday, March 30th, 2019


Please call the Parish Office to make your reservation: 773-327-8955.


The cost of the Parish Pre-Cana is included in your wedding fee.  If you are being married somewhere else, the cost of Pre-Cana is $200.00
