If you are considering a wedding, please call the parish office and ask to be contacted by a priest or deacon on the pastoral staff to discuss a wedding. Please make this call prior to setting any dates.
If you are already familiar with the Parish Pastoral Staff, you may call the priest or deacon of your choice to discuss wedding arrangements before setting the date.
A six month preparation period is required by parish and diocesan policy in order to allow for proper preparation of the parties to be married.
If either of the parties was previously married either civily or in a church ceremony, be sure to bring that to the immediate attention of the staff person with whom you meet. The previous marriage will likely need to be examined by the Diocese of Cleveland Marriage Tribunal through the process known as "annulment". The priest or deacon with whom you meet will be able to clarfiy this with you.
Pre-Cana activity must include the couples' participation in the Prepare & Enrich (P&E) program. The minister with whom you meet may elect to have you complete your review of the P&E assessment with one of our Marriage Preparation Couples who assist us in this ministry.
While other pre-Cana programs exist, participation in the P&E program is a both a parish and diocesan requirement.
