Marriage Course November 2022 postponed / uitgesteld tot Januari 2023!

Due to the fact that the dates were not good for the majority of the group we have decided to postpone the course till next year end of January.

Amsterdam is quite an international city and it is important to consider those who come from other countries when preparing for marriage in the Catholic Church. This course in English brings the participants in touch with other couples in the same situation and others who will help them to think about their future married life.

DAY AND TIME:  Wednesday Evenings or Saturday Afternoons

PLACE:                Keizersgracht 218 B – 1016 DZ Amsterdam
