Marriage Preparation 

The Newman Center offers one day marriage preparation workshops held at the Newman Center to assist in fulfilling the pre-marriage requirements of the Diocese of Fresno. Workshops begin at 8:00am and conclude with Mass at 5:00pm and are held on selected Saturdays throughout the year. Advance registration is required! A network of licensed marriage and family therapists associated with the Newman Center are used as educators within our Marriage Preparation Program and are referral resources when needed. Each couple will participate in one session with an approved licensed marriage and family therapist or family life minister as part of their marriage preparation. If for some compelling reason a couple cannot attend the one day workshop, they can see a counselor associated with or approved by the Newman Center for 3-5 sessions. The additional cost is the responsibility of the couple. To register you can pick up a form at our front desk office.
