Pre Cana Transformed In Love

Saint Basil Pre Cana has been ministering to engaged couples in and around the Archdiocese of Boston for over 25 years. We have an excellent, thought provoking, interactive marriage preparation program. There are eight (8) Friday – Saturday sessions that run from September through June. The program is fast paced, informative and enjoyable. Couples find it to be an opportunity to cover some important subjects regarding things to expect in their future together. Our goal is to help in any way we can to prepare you for marriage in the Catholic Church. Our team of married couples present a wide variety of topics through personal sharing and open discussion.

Sessions start on Friday evening – 7:00 – 9:30 PM, concluding on Saturday – 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Refreshments & snacks on Friday Night and Saturday Morning coffee & donuts, Hot lunch is included on Saturday. A couples tuition fee is $195. This is not an overnight.

Here is what they said…

“Upon arriving to Saint Basils for the Pre Cana course my fiancé and I were so surprised and happy to see so many young couples around our age group attending. All the couples who spoke were amazing especially Deacon John. He stood out the most to me! He was funny yet so honest. We are happy to have been able to experience this course and learn more about our relationship. Thank you !!”

“Chris and I just wanted to thank everyone for putting in the time and effort for the Pre-Cana program. Also a very special thanks to Gary and Carol for all the hard work they did. The program really addressed a lot of aspects of a marriage that were very helpful. The talks definitely hit home and it was good to know we are not alone by growing little by little everyday with Christ. The talk by Carol and Gary related to us very much and it was so uplifting to know that with God we can make our marriage wonderful too. Thank you and God bless, Anna”

“My fiancé and I attended the Pre Cana at St. Basil on June 9 & 10, 2017. We were not sure what to expect but we left on Saturday loving our experience. The hosts were great and did an amazing job scheduling the weekend. They were very accommodating and moved the weekend along nicely. The speakers were very entertaining and relatable. All in all it was a great weekend that we thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely recommend St. Basil to anyone we know getting married. -Robert Jones & Sheena Roche”

“We wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful Pre Cana weekend. It was so well done. Please thank all the volunteer couples and our compliments to the chef – lunch was great. We are now even more excited about getting married. 

Thanks again, 
Catherine and Gregory”

“I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks, as you went above and beyond to provide such a special Pre-Cana program last weekend. My fiancé, Ryan, and I both truly enjoyed it and we were so impressed with how organized and meaningful it was. We feel so much more prepared as a couple entering into marriage and we have still been talking about the things we took away from the weekend. Thank you so much again, from the bottom of our hearts!
