Registration Instructions

Registration instructions – please read before you register!

Classes are for you and your fiancé(e). Classes are designed to be taken as a couple. You must attend each class with your fiancé(e), even if he/she is not Catholic. Do not register if you or your fiancé(e) cannot attend either class.

Two selections for Two-Day programs. Choosing a “Two-Day” program requires selecting both a Part 1 class and a Part 2 class. You may take these parts in either order and if desired, at separate locations, but you do need to make both selections during your registration.  You cannot “checkout” without having chosen both Part 1 and Part 2.

Keep record of your registration. After successfully registering for marriage preparation online, you will receive an order number. Make note of this number for your records. You will need it if you want to reschedule in the future.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within one week, please email your order number to flrlevents@nyfamilylife.org.

We’ll send you a reminder. You will also receive an email reminder 3 days before each Two-Day class with the full address and directions to the location. (If you are in a Four-Evening class you will only receive one email reminder before the first class.)

Getting There. Find out which marriage preparation locations are accessible by either private vehicle or public transportation. See our directions page for information on getting to your class location.

Rescheduling? Contact us first. To avoid being charged twice for classes, do not re-register if you need to reschedule a class. For a schedule change, email our office at flrlevents@nyfamilylife.org and we will be happy to assist you.

Topics covered include self-awareness, communication, conflict resolution, commitment, and decision-making. Partners of Life and Love: Part 2 helps today’s couples understand and embrace a Catholic vision of married love by offering insights into the “whys” behind the “whats” of Catholic teaching.
