Marriage Preparation Teams

What happens once you've said...

once you've said i do


Would you like to make a difference in the lives of others considering the sacrament of Matrimony?

Interested in meeting other couples who are inspired to do the same?

Here is your opportunity to share the love!

Before your wedding you may have attended a Marriage Preparation Program. Maybe you really enjoyed it! Maybe you saw ways that it could have been even more helpful. This is our invitation to you to take that experience and that of your married life and use it to enrich your own relationship and those of engaged couples who are going through the same process you once did. 

The Diocesan Marriage Preparation program is looking for couples who have been married for at least one year to join their marriage preparation team. We constantly hear from those working in the program about how much they get out of their involvement - that they have rekindled their romances, better understand themselves and their spouse as individuals and as a couple, improved communication, and developed new friendships - and we want to extend that same invitation of ministry to you!

The Diocesan Marriage Preparation program meets in three locations - Mansfield, Dartmouth, and Harwich on Cape Cod. In each location there is a team of volunteers that facilitates three to five sessions per year. If you are interested in learning more or serving in this ministry, please call or email Claire McManus, Director of Faith Formation, at 508-678-2828, or
