Marriage is a sacrament which unites a man and woman in a holy covenant blessed by God. If you are planning on getting married, contact your parish at least six months prior to your wedding to set up an appointment to begin the process of preparing for your wedding. This will include:

  • a pre-Cana program,
  • a Fully Engaged Inventory,
  • a pre-nuptial investigation (to make sure that you are free to marry in the church)
  • other meetings to review the above
  • More information on the particular components of the preparation process can be found here on the Diocesan web site.
