Marriage Preparation Programs:

From Civil Marriage to Marriage in the Church:

Couples who have been civilly married and who wish to celebrate their marriage in the Church should meet with their local priest or deacon to begin their preparation.

Attending a Diocesan Pre-Cana Program will normally be part of that preparation.

Evenings for the Engaged

Dates are unavailable in advance. Couples are scheduled with the goal of completion by two months or more before your wedding date. You will be notified when a group becomes available.
