The issues facing widowed and couples with annulled marriages in the Catholic Church are very different from those a never-married engaged couple faces. These challenges include: coping with the emotional scars from a previous marriage, dealing with former spouses, co-parenting step-children, and blending families. Our Catholic faith offers both a hopeful perspective and practical wisdom to address these challenges.
Love Again - Remarriage Workshop
The “Love Again: Life Skills for Remarriage Workshop” is part one of two workshops that combined complete marriage preparation. It is a one-day workshop designed to help widowed and couples with annulled marriages anticipate the challenges and provide specific tools to help work through them. Each topic will be presented from a Catholic perspective, and the couple will be led through interactive, hands-on exercises to help prepare them for their new life together.
Topics covered are:
- Starting out new by dealing with the past
- Strategies for conflict resolution
- Step-kids, step-parenting, and step-families
- Blending faith, traditions, and daily life
Registration for part one, Remarriage Preparation Workshop, costs $80.00 and includes lunch. Available dates:
NOTE: After registering for the Love Again workshop, couples will receive a confirmation email that includes a link to register for part two of marriage preparation on a separate Saturday (topic: sacramentality of marriage). Couples will receive a “Certificate of Completion” from the Archdiocese of Atlanta after attending part 2 of marriage preparation. If you are placed on a waitlist, please contact Daniel West at firstname.lastname@example.org
