Marriage Preparation Seminar

The Marriage Preparation Seminar, beginning Friday evening and lasting all-day Saturday, assists engaged couples to form a community of life and love. It is held throughout the year at two locations, Fargo and Grand Forks, and periodically at other locations.

In Fargo the seminars are held at The Pastoral Center, 5201 Bishops Blvd and the program begins at 6:30 pm.  In Grand Forks the seminars are held at St. Thomas Newman Center, 410 Cambridge Street and the program begins at 7:00 pm.  

The program consists of activities, presentations, assignments, large group discussions and couple interaction. The cost to attend is $145.00 per couple, and includes presenter expenses, site rental, all materials, light breakfast, lunch and snacks. Lodging is your responsibility.
