MARRIAGE

The state of marriage is one that requires more virtue and constancy than any other; it is a perpetual exercise in mortification.

- St. Francis de Sales
 

Congratulations on your engagement! Marriages are essential in growing the Catholic Faith, and we want to walk with you during your engagement to help prepare you to enter into a good and holy Marriage. 

Here's are some things you need to know:

  •   Setting the date - Our calendar fills up fast, especially during the most coveted wedding months. In order to schedule your date, please call our church office. A deposit will be required to hold the date.

  • Call the church office one year prior to your wedding date to schedule a meeting with our Pastor.

ENGAGED COUPLES WEEKEND

  Every couple is required to attend an Engaged Couples Weekend. This is a weekend retreat for couples engaged to be married in the Catholic Church. It is led by a team of married couples and a priest who present on topics such as ambitions, goals, attitudes about God, sex, money, children, family, and your role in the Church and community. The members of the presenting team discuss these issues in the context of their own experience, sharing their personal stories. The main focus of the weekend, however, is to provide time for couples to privately reflect on and discuss these issues. 

 

Our next weekend is July 23rd-24th. To register for Engaged Couples Weekend click here.
