Wedding Precana Course

The Wedding Precana Course or Catholic Marriage Preparation Course is a short term course for girls and boys who are preparing or engaged to get married. It is usually a two to three days closed-ended classes, the exact period of which is a decision of the Vicar or concerned Biship of the Diocese. It can be joined before the marriage fixation or after it. But due to the restrictions in the validity of its certificate, usually this course is joined by the bride grooms together after the engagement or marriage fixation. The course explores the possibility of marriage, build strong foundations for life together, and teaches how to live happily as Christian couples. The courses are trusted by Catholic parishes and Dioceses around the World and so is at Kerala State too. Each couple receives an official "Certificate of Completion" upon attending the course. Valid Course Certificate is required for a couple to get a clean chit for marriage at a Parish.
