Marriage Preparation

The marriage covenant, by which a man and woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love, was founded and endowed by the Creator.  By its very nature it is ordered to the good of the couple as well as to the generation and education of children. Christ raised marriage between the baptized to the dignity of a Sacrament.  

As a life-long commitment between the couple, marriage requires an extended period of preparation.  Please contact the Parish Office at least eight (8) months in advance, before setting a date reserving a venue for your wedding.  Marriage preparation is required with either our parish priest, Father Richard Rasch.  

Couples must attend an Engaged Encounter Weekend, complete a course in Natural Family Planning and also a Prepare and Enrich program.  Information on these courses will be given to you at the first meeting with Father Richard.
