Congratulations on your engagement! We are excited that you wish to promise lifelong love to each other as husband and wife in the Lord. Marriage is a covenant union modeled after and symbolizing God’s ever-faithful love that He has for His people. Your decision to enter into the Sacrament of Marriage is an important one. We understand the importance of this decision and are here to assist you in preparing for marriage. We are committed to supporting you spiritually and providing you with tools necessary to enter into marriage. It is our hope and prayer that through your journey of preparation that you will come to a deeper understanding of what God’s plan is for your marriage and that you will learn truths and skills to help you live out your vocation of love. Preparation for the Sacrament of Matrimony is more than planning your Mass or liturgy. It is a learning process aimed at helping you succeed in your marriage!
Your love and life together will serve those around you as a sign that Jesus Christ is alive and present to the world. Preparation for marriage is a tremendous opportunity for spiritual growth together with God, and we’re glad to be a part of another milestone in your lives!
