For those unfamiliar: the conference for the engaged is a part of the Pre-Cana to help prepare ourselves for the sacrament of marriage in the Catholic Church. You have a choice to attend one of two options: The 8 hour long 1 day conference –or- the weekend retreat. We decided the 1 day conference would best & after months of waiting we finally went through it!
I’ve heard a mix of reviews from other people who attended in the past, most came out saying that it’s very boring and prepare to write notes to each other the entire time. We were both surprised that we actually really enjoyed the conference and we got a lot out of it! :o) The day was broken up into segments. Two couples and a Priest spoke about the different segments. Then a Psychiatrist came in and spoke about communication. The Priest was amazing, the two couples were a lot of fun to listen too and the Psychiatrist was hilarious & very insightful!
