Marriage Preparation

The requirements for marriage preparation flow from the Church’s deep respect for the dignity and mission of the laity in marriage. Because the Church values marriage so highly, she asks those entering marriage to understand what they are entering and to prepare for it. Marriage is a sacred covenant, a reality which far beyond a civil contract. Our diocesan marriage preparation program will provide you with the spiritual resources and practical tools you need for a strong and healthy marriage, not only as newlyweds, but for a lifetime. Call the Parish Office to set up an appointment.

For more information, call the Parish Office to speak to our Pastor Care Coordinator who will assist you with completing the pre-marriage requirement and prepare for your marriage to be a loving covenent made in Christ and for Christ.  Our office number is:  (623) 546-3444
