Marriage at St. Mary's
Since the Sacrament of marriage involves the joining of two people in a special union, a couple planning to marry should:
Before contracting for your reception, contact the parish priest or deacon at least one year prior to the anticipated wedding date; and
Attend a marriage preparation program. There are three parts to the program:
1) Time for instruction and discussion with a priest or deacon.
2) Pre-Cana Conference or Engaged Encounter Weekend.
3) Time with the parish Couples Sponsor Program.
By Diocesan Policy, at least one year is needed to complete the marriage requirements.
