Marriage Preparation

We believe that the Sacrament of Marriage is a lifelong commitment.  When a man and woman pledge their love, they share God’s love with each other and carry out God’s plan that the two shall become one.  Marriage is not a brief celebration on a certain day.  It is the work of a lifetime that requires special training preparation. An engaged couple must meet with the pastor at least a year before the proposed date of the marriage so that there is adequate time for the preparation.  Our goal is to assist you in preparing for a beautiful wedding ceremony and in developing a strong, healthy relationship with one another and with God which will lead to a Sacramental commitment and a life-giving marriage relationship.  The wedding preparation is designed to help the couple assess their readiness for a sacramental marriage.  Please call Fr. Fitz in the parish office to begin the process.
