Plan on a minimum of six contacts with the parish prior to the day of your wedding:


  • Initial session: To get acquainted, fill out necessary preliminary paper-work, which includes determining your freedom to marry, setting your date and discussing diocesan and parish guidelines.
  • Second session: administration of the Fully Engaged inventory.  This instrument for marriage preparation is self-diagnostic and designed to help couples learn more about themselves and their unique relationship. At this time, further sessions for interpretation and discussion will be scheduled.
  • Contact musician for consultation, early on.
  • Pre-cana sessions - presented in a variety of models at your parish, at another parish (schedule on diocesan website or on-line.
  • Meeting to finalize plans for your Marriage liturgy - Call to set this date well ahead of your ceremony. At this time, please plan to make an offering to the church. The suggested diocesan offering is $150.00
  • Rehearsal - the entire wedding party should attend.
