The Saturday for Engaged Couples is a one-day, all-day process exploring the meaning of marriage from a Roman Catholic perspective. Marriage is understood as "a covenant of irrevocable personal commitment between a man and a woman that is permanent and exclusive." In this process, the emphasis is on covenant and the commitment of two persons who create a community of life together through the sharing of the whole person -- physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.


Structure of the Day

Throughout the day, the nature of marital commitment is explored through presentations, couple exercises and group discussion. To encourage interaction, engaged couples are grouped by age and faith background and seated at tables facilitated by married couples.

$200 per couple, including continental breakfast and lunch. Pre-registration is required, and space is extremely limited! The fee must be paid when the application is mailed. No refunds will be made if a cancellation is received within seven days of the Saturday requested. Registration is by mail only. Preregistration is required. For more information, please email or call Julie Todd at (415) 288-3809.

The Saturday for Engaged Couples is held in the Church Hall (beneath the Church) at Old Saint Mary's Cathedral. 614 Grant Avenue, San Francisco CA 94108-2402.
