Wedding Precana

What is a wedding precana?

A Wedding PreCana is a marriage preparation program for engaged couples. The Wedding Pre-Cana Workshop is intended for those entering their first marriage (Catholic or Interfaith couples). We will examine key issues vital to the success of your marriage. The workshop will focus on such issues as communication, spirituality, sexuality, finance, and more. Couples are encouraged to be actively involved throughout the day.


The Archdiocese of Cincinnati asks couples to participate either in a Pre-Cana day or an Engaged Encounter Weekend.  Register through the Family Life Office of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.  Find the dates and locations online at:


Registration should be made three to six months prior to your wedding date. NO registrations will be taken over the phone.


All locations are wheel-chair accessible. Please dress comfortably and bring a sweater/sweatshirt if you do not like to be too cool. Come well rested.
