Congratulations on your engagement!
Your journey together began when you met, but will only continue to grow with strength in the sacredness of your marriage vows. Are you both entering freely, faithfully, and totally into the marital relationship? This is God’s Desire for your marriage and your marriage preparation will help you grow your relationship.
Where do we start?
Contact the pastor at the parish where you wish to be married. Do this before you set any wedding date!
How long do we need to prepare?
Allow yourselves 6-8 months as you will be meeting with the pastor, working on your relationship skills, discovering the beauty of the theology or teachings of marriage in the Catholic faith, and completing paperwork with your pastor.
What is Natural Family Planning and why do we have to take it?
Briefly, you will both learn the value of shared responsibility of marital sexuality that is natural, effective, healthy, and consistent with God’s plan for life, love, and marriage.

What do we need to do to prepare?
Take time for each other and talk about your relationship after the wedding. What do you each desire your life to be like?
