Fully Engaged & Pre-Cana

The Fully Engaged and Pre-Cana Session are required in order to be married at Sacred Heart Cathedral.

Fully Engaged:

The Fully Engaged inventory is a series of questions about different aspects of Marriage and how each couple responds to each other in their relationship.

We do the Fully Engaged Inventory once a month, on a Sunday afternoon at 1:30 P.M. in the Cathedral Church Office. After the results are tabulated at the Diocese, Deacon Lynn and Peggy Kershner, 

Deacon John Giugno, or Deacon Bruno and Dalia Petrauskas will meet each couple to go over the results.

Pre-Cana is a one day session presented two times a year at the Cathedral.  Topics covered: theology of marriage, spirituality, communication, marriage and family, sacramentality and intimacy, Natural Family Planning, and the Marriage Rite.  Our Mentor Couples give a short presentation on each topic followed by small group discussion.
