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.”
