Pre-Cana New York City

We offer Pre-Cana in two different formats through the Roman Catholic Church of Our Saviour in midtown Manhattan: small-group and private. Couples from other parishes are welcome to take Pre-Cana with us.

Our small-group program is offered once per year during the busy season for Pre-Cana. This year’s program began on February 25th. Our private-format program is available throughout the year.

Our small-group program is held over six consecutive Tuesday evenings. Our private Pre-Cana program can often be completed in a single session (couples are asked to do some advance reading and complete the FOCCUS exercise before we meet).

Our private program can be taken in Manhattan, in Cold Spring-on-Hudson, or online via internet video chat.

The FOCCUS exercise is an important part of our program. All couples who take Pre-Cana with us must complete this exercise as part of their marriage preparation with us.

The Church of Our Saviour is located at Park Avenue & 38th Street, a few short blocks from Grand Central Terminal.
