We 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 6 months before the desired marriage date to set up a meeting with a priest or deacon. As a dimension of this preparation, the Church calls couples to worship with the gathered community every Sunday and to build their unity through prayer and to express their love for each other in ways that respect Christ's call to chastity.
