Marriage Preparation Provision
Pontypridd Deanery Marriage Preparation
The following is a short summary of the approach we take to marriage preparation in the parish communities in the Deanery of Pontypridd.
We run a number of day programmes for couples, in one or other of the parish halls, but generally at Caerphilly and generally on a Sunday.We have up to 6 or 7 couples in each of the courses. If necessary we can make arrangements for you to contact other providers in the Archdiocese should the proposed date be inconvenient.All couples who have booked to be married in Deanery churches are expected to attend the course. There is a nominal charge of £25 per couple for the course, you should bring your own sandwiches, however tea / coffee will be provided.
Carol and I are the Deanery co-ordinators and we send out details to all the couples. The parish priest will expect you to make contact with us to make arrangements. The course covers the following areas: Communication, Conflict; Sexuality, Spirituality, Compatibility, Self esteem and Commitment. The format is participative.
The course content is provided by ‘Marriage Care’ and all Diocesan providers are trained by ‘Marriage Care’
