The Los Angeles Archdiocese offers several sessions every month and there are Engaged Encounter Weekends that also satisfy this requirement. This registration form is for the American Martyrs Pre-Cana Day. If you want to make arrangements for the Engaged Encounter Weekend or a session conducted by the Archdiocese, please call the Office of Family Life at 213-637-7250.
