Pre-Cana New York City

We offer a flexible private-format Pre-Cana program through the Roman Catholic Churches of St. Thomas More in Manhattan and St. Charles Borromeo in Brooklyn Heights.

Both in-person and Zoom sessions are available.

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). I do meet with some couples a second, third, or even fourth time, if helpful.

For a current list of available dates, please visit: You can make an appointment directly on our Calendly calendar.

The cost of our private-format program is $395. This fee can be reduced in case of financial need.

The Pre-Cana program fee can be paid via Venmo (our Venmo ID is: CreativeMarriages) or PayPal.
