It is mandatory for couples to attend the Pre-Martial Program in order to obtain permission to marry in the Diocese of Mississauga Vancouver and Western Canada.
“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
The Pre-Marital Retreat is a three day retreat that usual takes place twice a year.
