Why Online Courses?
Explore the Benefits That Online Learning Offer
Your Parish or Diocese probably has a great weekend retreat or a Saturday Pre-Cana program, which is wonderful for couples who can make it.
But for couples who are separated by distance, our online program is the perfect tool in your Ministry’s toolbox to make sure that your couples still have a sacramental and comprehensive marriage preparation program.
While your Parish or Diocese may offer traditional weekend retreats or Saturday Pre-Cana programs, they may not be offered with enough regularity, or at times when your engaged couples are able to attend.
Our online, on-demand Catholic marriage preparation programs are available to couples 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. They can work through the course anytime, anywhere.
When you have to cancel one of your traditional Pre-Cana programs, it is best to offer those couples who were already registered an alternative to ensure they complete their marriage preparation in time. We know you don’t have to cancel your programs very frequently, but when you do, it’s great to have our online Catholic marriage preparation programs in your back pocket. This allows the couple to finish on time, according to schedule, in plenty of time before their wedding day!
Often times, Diocesan Offices and Parishes struggle to create and deliver a quality, comprehensive marriage preparation program for their engaged couples. Perhaps they are a rural Diocese or maybe the Parish has a predominately aging congregation, or maybe there aren’t as many weddings from year to year. Our online courses are a perfect way for you to know exactly what your engaged couples experience in the few and far between weddings that you do host within your Parish/Diocese.
Featuring closed captioning in both English and Spanish, our online marriage preparation programs are an ideal and appreciated solution for couples where one or both may have hearing impairments or physical restrictions that would make it a challenge, if not impossible, to experience a traditional Pre-Cana program.
Simply refer them to our courses, where they can attend and complete the elements from any internet connected computer, tablet, or smartphone, anywhere.
Our online learning experiences are perfect solutions for engaged couples working through it on their own in a self led, or self-paced fashion, but also an ideal experience for couples who are partnered up with a facilitating priest or deacon, or a sponsor/mentor couple.
We provide the tools to make both experiences rewarding and comprehensive for couples marrying in the Catholic Church.
Several “accountability factors” to give you, the ministry leader, the assurance that your engaged couples really did take the time and interest to work through the course in an intentional, meaningful way. By combining online videos each followed by a reflection exercise, coupled with downloadable materials including discussion guides and a premarital inventory component, our blended learning approach to marriage preparation ensures that, not only do couples learn and benefit from the experience, but you have the tools and the peace of mind that they were really impacted by a comprehensive marriage preparation program, and they will have the certificate of completion to prove it!
