What is it?
Once More With Love is a marriage preparation program for couples preparing for marriage after one or both persons have experienced a divorce or death of a former spouse.
Couples today are entering a second marriage with little or no preparation. Often they are bringing unresolved issues from childhood or an earlier marriage. Blending of two families requires much more than a desire to “make it work this time.” This program is designed to address the critical issues of a second marriage and to offer an opportunity to establish a solid foundation for a new intimate relationship.
The workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. and close with liturgy at 5:00 p.m. It is essential that a couple plan to attend the entire day.
Cost: $100 (lunch and materials included)
