Widely accepted and promoted throughout the Catholic Church

Our courses are trusted by Catholic parishes and dioceses around the world. Each year, thousands of couples rely on the most comprehensive, convenient, and popular online programs to meet the requirements for marriage preparation in the Catholic Church.

If you or your priest have any questions about the program, please let us know. We regularly speak with priests on couples’ behalf, letting them know how the program works and how they fit into the process.

Featured as a marriage preparation resource on the foryourmarriage.org website, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, this program is endorsed by many priests, deacons, and ministry teams.
