RE: SCHEDULE OF MARRIAGE PREPARATION SEMINARS
Dear Fathers, Monsignori, Brothers and Sisters:
Greetings of Peace!
The Commission on the Family, in coordination with the Catholic Engaged Encounter Philippines, is pleased to present to your reverence the schedule of Marriage Preparation Seminars.
It was conceived by the Commission in its efforts to have a standard and comprehensive program for couples preparing to receive the Sacrament of Matrimony.
The MPP/CEE is a weekend program that gives couples preparing for marriage the opportunity to examine their lives together through communication… a time to share their feelings, hopes, disappointments, joys, frustrations… and to do so openly and honestly in a face to face, heart to heart setting designed to deepen and enrich their relationships with each other and with God.
This is a time for couples to focus on their couple relationship away from the distractions and tensions of everyday life.
Attached is the Brochure with a short description of the weekend-seminar as well as the other necessary details.
It would be good to suggest to your parishioners preparing for marriage to attend this weekend, as we have been receiving good feedbacks from couples who have undergone this beautiful experience of preparation for their marriage.
Let us continue to be collaborators of the Church in caring for the families.
