Pre Cana Registration

“To Have and To Hold” is our marriage preparation program here at St. Pius X Church. Usually, it is held in person and run by different married couples in our parish. During this time of uncertainty, we have created a virtual experience for couples, we will update you when our in person retreat will resume. The retreat includes four different sessions throughout the month with a group of engaged couples and married “mentor” couples. It is a great time to get to know other engaged couples as well as begin conversations with your future spouse that you will continue throughout your marriage!  For more information, please call Kirsten Bernardo at 518-462-1336 or email Please come join us and meet other couples at St. Pius X! We are excited to walk with you in this journey and prepare you for the beautiful Sacrament of Matrimony.
