Your preparation for marriage begins at least six months in advance of the day you would like to marry. You should plan to meet with the parish priests to discuss your desire to marry. The priest will be happy to give you any further information that you may need.

At the initial visit, the priest can place a tentative wedding date on the parish calendar. After this meeting, at a separate time, you will need to complete and review a pre-marriage inventory called FOCCUS; participate in an Engaged Encounter Weekend, and provide the necessary documents for marriage. As you begin to consider all of the plans to be made and the many details to be taken care of, we will be available to help and direct you. We hope to help not only make these days easier for you, but to help also make your wedding more beautiful and spiritually enriching.

May the Lord who has called you to this wonderful Sacrament of Marriage bless you in the days and weeks ahead and may your wedding at Sacred Heart Church be one of the happiest and most beautiful memories of your life.
