Marriage Preparation Resources

        The Office of Catholic Education (OCE) oversees the catechetical components for the Sacrament of Matrimony.  We recognize that the marriage preparation process is an opportunity to invite couples to deepen and, in some cases, reclaim their practice of the Faith.     

By working directly with the Indianapolis-based Pre-Cana program and consulting with deaneries and parishes on their catechetical and sponsor couple programs, OCE seeks to ensure that the preparation offered for the Sacrament of Matrimony clearly communicates the Church's understanding of and teachings about Matrimony as well as offering an opportunity to reflect on the day-to-day realities of marriage.
