Each couple must meet with a parish priest, deacon, or pastoral associate at least six months before any possible marriage date. No date for marriage will be considered firm until this meeting has taken place.
Pre-Marriage Preparation Programs are designed to put you in touch with the trained and competent people who can help you think through the sacramental and practical aspects of marriage. Your priest or parish minister will assist you in choosing a program.
The engaged couple will complete a Marriage Preparation Survey in order to assist them in further reflection on their up coming vocation as husband and wife.
