Marriage Preparation Programs

Office Logo

Congratulations on your decision to marry! 

The prayers of the Church are with you as you prepare to commit to a lifetime of loving each other.

The process begins eight to twelve months before the wedding when the engaged couple calls the parish to make an appointment with the priest to discuss being married.
