THE PARISH OF THE HOLY FAMILY PRECANA AT ST. HELEN WORSHIP SITE
Precana is a great program that conveys to couples about life, struggles and solutions in marriage in a comfortable group atmosphere. The morning starts with all couples together and then breaks into smaller groups in the afternoon. A continental breakfast is offered in the morning and a catered meal is served for lunch.
Some of the comments from our last Couples Feedback Sheets:
Q: WHAT DID YOU FIND MOST WORTHWHILE?
"Being able to discuss in groups. I think people find it easier to talk when they know others have similar situations and can share their real life experiences."
"Personal stories/advice from Lead Couples and other couples in precana. It was nice to hear they are the same and yet different from us."
Q: DESCRIBE YOUR FEELINGS WHILE ATTENDING THE SESSIONS.
"I was comfortable and enjoyed the experience. The "game" sessions was fun.
"I was very apprehensive to start, but was completely moved and touched by the end. It was a wonderful experience that all engaged couples should attend no matter what religion they are."
Q: WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF WISDOM WILL YOU TAKE HOME WITH YOU TODAY?
"To absolutely work together as a couple and take care of each other."
"The importance of Conversation & communication in relationships. The importance of keeping our relationship young and fresh and open."
"You are getting married "IN" Church not "AT" Church."
