I totally understand your frustration. We are getting married in the Catholic church and so we have to do the pre-marital counseling sessions and a 3 day retreat as well. I have a fairly flexible job (except for October-February) however my Fiance does not, and even worse we are in a LDR so he has to travel 1 hour each way for the sessions. But the priest refuses to do them on the weekends, and the only full night off that Fiance has is Monday, which of course is the priests day off. UGH!It’s really been a struggle to find meeting times that work with both schedules.

We were about to switch priests and use the one where he lives but that would be in a different diocese which would cause more headaches.

We have had 4 sessions with the priest, and 2 sessions with a married couple and we are waiting to hear from the priest to hopefully finish up with one last session.(We were hoping to have this done already by now though since my crazy work schedule starts next week! And I am basically unavailable during the week now).

It is definitely a headache, but luckily for both of us we really feel like we are getting a lot out of the conversations that are brought up.

If I were you I would stay with who you are using now, so that way you don’t have to do any backtracking on work you have already done. There are only 3 sessions left! Yay!

Good Luck.
