The Sacraments of Baptism and Matrimony require preparation in advance of the actual rite or ceremony.
Baptism requires at least a 30 day notice. Ideally, the Sacrament of Matrimony requires a 6 month notice. In addition, the Diocese requires that a pre-marriage inventory and a pre-marriage course be completed prior to the marriage. Pre-Cana or Engaged Encounter programs fulfill this requirement.Please call the rectory for more details.
