St. Paul Catholic Newman Center’s Marriage Preparation Program requires you to 1) complete an online PREPARE/ENRICH assessment and participate in a follow-up meeting to review the results of the assessment; 2) Register for and attend one of the Newman Center’s Saturday Marriage Preparation Workshops; 3) Attend a follow-up session with a marriage and family life counselor associated with the Newman Center. Upon completion of these requirements, you will have satisfied the Diocese’s Marriage Preparation requirement.

The Newman Center offers one-day, Marriage Preparation Workshops to assist engaged couples in fulfilling the pre-marriage preparation required by the Diocese of Fresno. If you are planning a wedding in 2022-23, you are welcome to participate in our marriage preparation program and attend our next Workshop.

The date for the next Marriage Preparation Workshop is: Saturday, August 13, 2022

The Marriage Preparation Workshop begins at 8:00 a.m. and concludes with Mass at 5:00 p.m.

The cost is $250 per couple. (*If marrying at the Newman Center, these services are included in the Newman Center’s Wedding fee).

This fee includes the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment, the Marriage Prep Workshop, and the follow-up counseling session. Continental Breakfast & Lunch are provided at the Workshop.
