Arrangements must be made with Fr. Bob, Deacon Ted or Deacon Kevin 9 months in advance (6 months depending on where the couple is with their Catholic faith & participation as a registered practicing parishioner) of your proposed wedding date, whereby to sit down and go over the guidelines for your wedding to take place at St. Jude.
The following is a brief overview (in order) of what is required:
1) One of the engaged couple must be a registered, practicing parishioner
with St. Jude or at their local friendly Catholic parish. If a member of another parish, a letter must be sent from that pastor stating this before the preparation can begin.
2) Meet with Fr. Bob, Deacon Ted or Deacon Kevin
3) Meet with parish FOCCUS mentor couple for two or three meetings & complete questionaire.
4) Complete CIS (Catholic Information Series) program.
5) Attend (your choice) either the Engage Encounter Weekend or the We CARE Seminar.
Weddings are normally celebrated Friday evenings, Saturday afternoons or other days may be arranged with Fr. Bob, Deacon Ted or Deacon Kevin.
Note: If you live outside the area that would prevent you from doing your marriage prep here; then you can approach your friendly Catholic parish where you live and ask to do the pre-marriage preparation that their diocese may require; but you will still need to meet with Fr. Bob, Deacon Ted or Deacon Kevin sometime during your marriage preparation process.
No weddings are celebrated during the Lenten season.
