Because Christian marriage is a sacrament, St. Michael the Archangel wants couples to be well-prepared. Marriage preparation is required of couples to help them develop a better understanding of the sacrament; to evaluate and deepen their readiness to live married life; and to gain insights into themselves as individuals and as a couple.
Marriage is a serious commitment between a bride and groom that represents the deepest love of each for the other. Ideally, preparation for the marriage ceremony requires a minimum of six months planning in advance of the date. Couples must complete certain minimum requirements including meeting with the pastor and a marriage preparation program. Please contact the Pastor for more information.
