Strong and Vibrant Marriages
Bishop Daniel E. Thomas and the Diocese of Toledo are committed to cultivating strong and vibrant marriages - that we might become a diocese of Holy Disciples, Holy Families, and Holy Vocations.
In a society so overwhelmed by confusion and broken examples of family life, it is of the utmost importance that engaged couples strive to lay a strong and permanent foundation for their sacramental marriages. The Diocese of Toledo has found the Joy-Filled Marriage program to be a powerful and effective way for couples to broaden their understanding of God’s divine plan for their life together, and encourages difficult conversations that otherwise are often avoided or forgotten.
The world needs so badly to see marriages and families alive in Christ, actively living out a joy-filled marriage. Fortify and bolster your marriage and life together by attending the Joy-Filled Marriage workshop!
JOY-FILLED MARRIAGE WORKSHOPS
The "Joy-Filled Marriage" workshop is an enjoyable, interactive and comprehensive program for engaged couples, which will delve into practical “life skills” and the sacramentality of marriage, guided by a dedicated and well-trained team of married couples and individuals.

Catholic Marriage PrepOnline Pre Cana
Joy-Filled Marriage - Online offers a comprehensive approach to marriage preparation that covers not only the sacramentality and theology of marriage, but the practical life skills necessary to live out the rich Catholic vision of marriage. For this offering, you can trust couples certified through the course have:
- Watched all session videos
- Demonstrated an understanding of the material through the assessment
- Completed the activities required for completion of the course
At the end of the course, couples will receive a certificate with a serial number that they can forward or print for you to keep for your records. The last step of this process will be for them to meet with you, so you can focus your time on engaging with them and fostering a pastoral connection.
