Genesis Marriage Retreat

As you prepare for marriage, we invite you to be a part of the Genesis Marriage Community, where you will meet other engaged and newly married couples as well as married couples from around the Archdiocese of Cincinnati who want to share this exciting journey of married life with you.

It all begins with GENESIS, the one-day retreat for engaged couples.  On the GENESIS retreat, also known as Pre-Cana, you will deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ and one another.  You will meet other engaged couples as you begin the journey towards your wedding day where “authentic married love is caught up into divine love.”
