Marriage Preparation Information
Congratulations as you seek to begin married life. We are honored you’ve considered to allow us to be part of your love story.
Planning your wedding ceremony is only one part of the Marriage preparation process here at St. Bridget. We seek to work with you to begin a process of laying the foundation for a life-long commitment into the Sacrament of Marriage. In order to allow sufficient time to carry out the various steps of this process, it is necessary for a couple to contact their parish as soon as they make the decision to marry, or at least six months prior to the anticipated time of their wedding. Through the combined efforts of the couple, the pastor, parish staff, and volunteer FOCCUS facilitator couples, we seek to enhance this process and assure your readiness toward this covenant of love.
The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.
Participation in the marriage preparation process is a requirement for all couples seeking to be married. If you are interested in being married at St. Bridget Catholic Church, the first step is to call the Parish Office to secure your date. Once the date is set, you will then be contacted by the Marriage Prep coordinator to begin this journey.
