Promise Marriage Preparation Ministry
Promise is the Pre-Cana or marriage preparation program offered here at St. John of the Cross. Three sessions are offered each year in the Parish Center. Two sessions take place over four (4) consecutive Thursday evenings. The third is a one-day event offered on a Saturday. The Promise Team is made up of married couples from the Parish. They lead engaged couples and share their experiences through discussions, exercises and presentations on the many facets of married life. Topics covered include: Expectations of Marriage, Communications, Dealing with Conflict, Finance, Sexuality, Children, In-Laws, and Marriage as a Sacrament. Other married couples are always welcome to join the Promise Team.
