Marriage

Marriage

  • Couples who are planning to be married are required to notify a parish priest as soon as possible after the engagement but no less than six months prior to the marriage. He will address all of the requirements for getting married in the Church with you and answer any questions you may have.
  • Engaged couples are required to participate in a Pre-Cana (Marriage Preparation) Session.

Pre-Cana Class

  • In order for you to prepare to receive the Sacrament of Marriage, the Church requires some form of formal marriage preparation. Pre-Cana is a Catholic preparation course for the Sacrament of Marriage. It is offered at Corpus Christi Parish in the Spring and Fall of each year. The sessions are designed to help engaged couples to discern their vocation to marriage and family life. They are centered on commitment to God and to each other and address many important everyday issues of sharing life together.  Each weekend schedule is Saturday: 9-5:30 & Sunday: 9-12:30.  Lunch is included on Saturday as well as snacks and beverages.
  • Upcoming Pre-cana classes:  February 24-25, 2018  (Cost: $95 / couple) – Contact ccprecanateam@gmail.com for information.
