Pre-Marital Counseling
Note:
a minimum of five hours is required by St. Bartholomew’s

These are possible alternatives to counseling with the pastor who is performing the ceremony if he/she is unavailable to do your counseling.  You may use another Christian minister, use a Christian marriage and family counselor or possibly attend a weekend retreat to fulfill this requirement.

Possible weekend retreats include Engaged Encounter weekend (www.engagedencounter.com) or a New Cana weekend (contact your local     Roman Catholic church) to meet this obligation.

Contact other churches in your local area that may also offer special programs for engaged couples. Center for Family & Couple Therapy, Colorado State University – 970-491-5558
