Newly engaged couples are asked to contact one of the parish priest at least six months in advance of their wedding day.
PRE – MARRIAGE PREPARATION
Along with setting the date, the priest will provide an initial contact for the marriage preparation program. We provide several options for our engaged couples. The first step is to schedule an appointment with one of our priests or deacon and a list of marriage prep options will be made available.
Pre-Marriage Classes are listed on the Diocesan page here.
CATHOLIC? BUT NOT MARRIED IN THE CHURCH?
To obtain the Church’s blessing of a marriage that was not Catholic can be relatively easy. Regardless of why couples marry outside the Church and later seek the church’s blessing, the benefits of convalidation are enormous: peace of heart, oneness with the church, reception of the Sacrament of Matrimony, and God’s special blessing upon the marriage. Contact one of our priests or Deacon Francis to discuss the situation and determine what must be done. Call 412-486-4100 to make an appointment.
