Snehalaya Marriage Preparation Course
On our Snehalaya Website, we provide the material for an On-line Marriage Preparation Course. This is meant mainly for COUPLES FROM THE ARCHDIOCESE OF BOMBAY. Or for couples where one partner, at least is from MUMBAI and the other partner from elsewhere.
At Snehalaya, we take responsibility to help couples having their residence in Mumbai. Couples from elsewhere cannot be helped by the Archdiocese of Bombay.
If couples from outside Mumbai do the course on-line, we are not able to monitor them nor issue a certificate.
For couples from Mumbai, they should get a clearance from the priest of the parish in writing. This will enable them to do the On-line course and get a certificate.
