Pre-Cana couple ministers are trained married couples who assist priests and deacons in preparing engaged couples for marriage. Their role is to meet with an assigned engaged couple for three to five sessions in the home of the couple ministers to help prepare the engaged couple to live the Sacrament of Marriage. They discuss important aspects of Catholic married life such as the sacramentality of the marriage covenant, communication, family life, and marriage expectations. They serve an important role as mentor and guide for the engaged couple both before and after the wedding.
