The Church celebrates a couple’s love at one of the most memorable, pivotal, and beautiful times in a couple’s life. It is essential to remember that it is not just about love for its own sake– it is about the couple’s love for one another, which honors and reflects the love that God has for each of us. 

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:7

Marriage preparation begins remotely at birth as a child watches and learns from their parents.  Young people are encouraged to learn the skills of discernment or deciding if marriage is their vocation.  Engaged couples are asked to reach out to their parish as soon as possible to begin preparation for the sacrament. Typically, the immediete preparation for the sacrament of marriage is done at the direction of the clergy preparing a couple.  We strongly encourage finding a marriage mentoring couple to help as a support through the first few critical years of marriage.

Marriage Enrichment throughout the years is also so important following the wedding ceremony. Visit the Marriage Enrichment page for a list of programs and resources available to help support married couples.
