Many couples have been “preparing” for marriage for years already – your conversations, dates, meeting of friends and family, and simply quietly sitting with each other – all of this is preparation for a lifelong marriage.

At St. Basil’s, we begin with your experience.

Many programs focus exclusively on aspects of your daily living:  conflict management, communication, finances, and the like; and though we do address these topics, these subjects are not our sole or primary focus.

Instead, our focus is to deepen your faith and offer some insight about how to share that faith with each other so that you may both grow in your relationship with God and the Church through your relationship with each other.


The general expectation is that couples getting married at St. Basil’s will enroll in the Marriage Preparation course at the Parish. However, if the session dates pose a scheduling conflict, alternate arrangements can be considered.

Currently, the course is NOT open to couples getting married at a parish other than St. Basil’s.

Confirmation of registration or inquiries can be addressed to Margaret, our office manager: [email protected]


The fee for the Marriage Preparation Course session is $250, payable by cash or cheque. Cheques can be addressed to: St. Basil’s Catholic Parish.

Payment can be mailed or dropped off at the parish office during office hours.

  • Thursday, February 16;
  • Thursday, February 23;
  • Thursday, March 2;

  • Thursday, March 16; and,
