The diocesan Department of Youth, Marriage and Family Life will host a workshop June 29 for couples who have been civilly married and are interested in entering into a sacramental marriage – a process called convalidation.

The workshop, entitled “The Cana Experience: Bringing Your Marriage Into the Church,” will be held in Our Lady of Sorrows – St.

Anthony Parish, 3816 E. State Street Ext., Hamilton, in the lower church from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. , June 29.

Registration is $125 per couple, and includes breakfast, lunch and all materials.

The program is designed to prepare couples who have been civilly married for the process of convalidation, and is presented by a trained team of married couples and a priest. The workshop includes virtue-based life skills training, and aims to connect the spirituality of marriage to daily married life.

The name comes from the biblical story of the bride and bridegroom from Cana inviting Jesus to their wedding. Along the same lines, the program is designed to encourage couples to invite Jesus into their marital relationship, participating in the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.

For more information, contact Peg Hensler, diocesan coordinator of marriage ministries, at 609-403-7156, at [email protected].
