avalon logo 1 Online Pre Marriage Course

“We took this pre marriage course last month and it was our priest who recommended it to us. We listened to two priests giving their thoughts on marriage which we thought was really interesting. There were other inputs from a fertility expert and a financial consultant that we thought were really practical and down to earth. We had great fun with the different quizzes we had to do in the workbooks. The course was easy to do, and definitely brought us closer together. Can’t recommend enough” – Jean and Shane, Cork.

We have a 99% approval rating from couples just like you who have experienced our pre marriage course and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Avalon has interviewed a number of priests for this program.

We will be adding more of these interviews to our program every three months. These interviews give couples a great insight into the mindset of priests whose job it is to prepare couples for marriage.

We also include a number of e-books for couples to read that help couples with understanding their faith.

Avalon will also be offering webinars to couples should they need to discuss any aspect of the program with us.

Simply email us at and tell us how we can help you. We will then create a webinar just for you or for other couples who may share your issues or concerns. If couples need expert advice on any aspect of their relationship then we will also organize this wherever possible.

Couples are never alone, we are always here to help and support you.

Your certificate is valid for a life-time. If you postponed your wedding for two years your certificate will still be valid when you go to get married again.
