Marriage Care logoPreparing Together: Marriage Preparation Days


The Marriage Care Swindon and Wiltshire Centre work with local priests to help couples prepare for a lifelong relationship through our Marriage Preparation Days. Amid the excitement of planning the wedding we provide space for couples to gain a better understanding of how good relationships work by exploring issues with each other in a safe and supportive environment. The courses also look at the sacrament of marriage and marriage vows. The courses are highly recommended by the participants.
