We strongly advise all couples to do a pre marriage course to help with understanding the full meaning of the sacrament as well as advice for a happy marriage. The courses are run with the help of married couples. They are available on Accord Website and other websites. There is a leaflet available at the presbytery explaining all that is necessary to prepare for the sacrament in St. Aengus’s Church with websites given in it.

An Engaged Couples’ Prayer:

Lord Jesus,

You have called us to be united in your love, we thank you.

We thank you for the gift of each other, for the joy and happiness we share.

We thank you for family and friends who support and encourage us.

We thank you for our faith in you, may it sustain and strengthen us through the ups and downs of our lives.

May the love we experience between us become the bond of our commitment.

As we prepare for our wedding day, deepen that love, and make it as the love you have shown us, a love that will never end.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
