All engaged couples intending to receive the sacrament of marriage in the Roman Catholic Church must attend preparation programs that will assist them in living out their vocation. Weekend sessions are scheduled throughout the year at convenient locations throughout the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Weekend sessions typically take place Saturday and Sunday, 9:00AM-5:00PM. For more information on these sessions, contact the Office of Faith Formation: Diocesan Marriage Prep
Finally, couples may opt to go “out of diocese” and register with one of the pre-Cana sessions offered by the Diocese of Brooklyn, the Archdiocese of New York, or beyond. Couples participating in any of these should submit their certificates to St. Christopher’s Parish as soon as the pre-Cana sessions have been completed.
