Our parishes congratulate those couples who desire to enter into the covenant of marriage! To begin formal preparations for a lifetime of married life and love, couples should contact the parish office at least six months before the hoped for marriage date to set up a meeting with Fr. Pat. As a dimension of this preparation, the Church calls couples to worship with the gathered community every Sunday. As well, in the name of Christ we call couples to build their unity through prayer and to express their love for each other in ways that respect Christ’s call to chastity
