Marriage Prep

A minimum of six months is needed to prepare a couple for the sacrament of marriage.  A period of six to eight months is preferred.  Due to the geographical/jurisdictional regulations of the church, we can only witness the marriages of our own parishioners.  However, those coming in from elsewhere can be accommodated here with proper delegations and permissions.  For more information on the marriage preparation program at our parish, contact the person listed below.
