Sacraments - Marriage

Engaged couples should contact one of the priests as early as possible, preferably at least six months in advance of the date they wish to be married. The priest will meet with the couple and inform them of what they will need to do to prepare for the Sacrament of Marriage.

Please note that it is church policy not to schedule any weddings during the season of Lent.

The Marriage Preparation Program (Pre-Cana) is required by the Archdiocese of Chicago for all engaged couples. Through group discussions, exercises and presentations, the engaged concentrate on the many facets of married life.
