Couples getting married in Malta in a Roman Catholic Church should attend the Marriage Preparation Course organized by the Cana Movement. This is an obligatory course and it is suggested to attend this course around two years prior to the wedding.
What does this Course consist of?
The course consists of ten short and interesting weekly talks / workshops. Discussions are held in small groups where different opinions can be expressed amongst other couples getting married in a Roman Catholic church. A leading couple will be present to help throughout the meetings. You will be given a booklet to guide you through these meetings. At the end of the course the couple will be presented with a certificate of attendance which must be presented at the Curia together with the Immediate Preparation for Marriage certificate (see below).
Where and when are these Courses held?
Marriage Preparation Courses are held in various parishes around Malta three times a year; in January, April and October. Booking is done directly with the Parish Church where you will be attending, ideally a month or more in advance. A fee of Euro 35 per couple applies.
English speaking couples; Courses in English are held in April and October.
Immediate Preparation for Marriage
Apart from the above course, closer to the wedding date the couple is to attend a number of meetings organised by the respective parish. At the end the couple will be presented with another certificate. Both certificates are to be submitted upon registration for marriage at the Curia.
