Couples preparing for marriage in the Catholic Church must attend a Pre-Cana workshop before their wedding.  This workshop is an opportunity to reflect on the beauty of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and to discuss some of the practical aspects of married life.

Saint Anselm Parish offers two Pre-Cana workshops each year—one in the Spring, and one in the Fall.  Each workshop consists of two events.  The first part is a weeknight during which couples complete the FOCCUS Inventory, and the second part is a full Saturday of reflections, presentations, and engaging activities led by married couples.  These two parts, taken together, satisfy the requirements for the Pre-Cana workshop.

Engaged couples from any parish are welcome to attend Pre-Cana at Saint Anselm’s.  The cost for the workshop is $100 per couple.  The dates for our upcoming Spring 2016 workshop are:


  Tuesday, September 26th @ 6:30pm-9:15pm

(Spirituality Center – FOCCUS Inventory/Movie)


Saturday, October 7th @ 9am-5pm 

(Spirituality Center, concluding with anticipated Mass for Sunday)

The registration form for the fall 2017 workshop is available for download HERE.  More information about the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is available here.
