Pre-marital Enrichment Seminars

The Northeast American Diocese will begin for the first phase of formal premarital counseling retreats in December 2017. It has been a dream of the Diocese to institute formal premarital counseling retreats ito help prepare our young couples as they embark on sacred journey of Christian Marriage.

In order to prepare and strengthen our young couples, the Diocese is formally instituting Pre-Marital Counseling Seminars on three separate occasions at our Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center. This will ensure our couples are able to participate in one session prior to their marriage. These seminars will be held on Saturday, December 9th, 2017, Saturday, January 13th, 2018, and Saturday, April 7th, 2018 from 9:30AM to 12:30PM. The registration fee of $25 are to be made payable to the Northeast American Diocese. For more information, please contact our Diocesan Secretary, Reverend Father Sujit Thomas.

Any couple preparing for marriage are to participate in one of these sessions. Those who have been recently married, are also encouraged to participate in one of these sessions. Reverend Father Paul Cherian, will be facilitating all of these seminars. Achen has a Masters in Counseling, and has offered effective premarital counseling to many couples throughout our Diocese.

The prayerful support of our clergy and faithful are solicited in this new ministerial initiative. His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos shared in his Kalpana "It is our prayer this ministry will only strengthen, and become an effective tool in preventing the erosion of the Christian family."
