Premarital Counseling

shutterstock_215015875At Catholic Charities West Michigan we support the growth of healthy relationships and believe that a strong marriage is a key ingredient and a necessary foundation for a healthy family. In order to support couples preparing for this important commitment, we offer a 4-session Premarital Preparation experience to assist in understanding the dynamics of their relationship.

During these hour-long meetings, the individual couple is given the opportunity to:

  • look at strengths and growth areas
  • learn and affirm communication and conflict resolution skills
  • explore expectations in a safe environment
  • understand how each other’s history affects ways of being with each other now

At the conclusion of the five-sessions, a letter of completion will be sent to the parish/church where the wedding will take place.
