Marriage preperation

An Engaged Couple must contact their Pastor at least six months prior to the expected date of the wedding . Preparation will consist of: (1) sessions with the Pastor inclusive of a pre-marital inventory of communication and expectations, general preparation, and formal documentation; (2) Marriage Sponsor Couple Program or Engaged Encounter; (3) Dispensations (if needed) and Liturgical Preparations. Anyone previously married will need proof of freedom to marry in the Catholic Church — e.g., evidence of being widowed, declaration of invalidity, etc.).
