Holy Matrimony

QUESTIONS about Planning Your Wedding?

The Sacrament of Holy Matrimony 

Let’s begin with: “Congratulations on your engagement!”

Please contact Father Ken Smith at for

*All couples recently engaged or preparing to be engaged should visit our website or contact the Parish

*Any couples who are invalidly married, outside communion with the Church

*Any person desiring to speak about an annulment to help heal and be reconciled 

*Any couple in need of counseling or spiritual direction

Couples recently engaged and preparing for Marriage are asked to be practicing Catholics and if not, will be asked to attend a Faith and Disciple Seminar Series (4)  as part of their preparation.

Couples who are “cohabiting” (living together) before Marriage will be encouraged to separate or can be married in the church with a simple, private family liturgy

Any couple facing challenging circumstances and would like to speak with someone, please contact Father Ken directly.

The Process involves: meetings with Father Ken, FOCCUS Inventory, Love Languages Profile, Engaged Encounter or Gods Plan for Love diocesan session, Meetings with Mentor Couple, liturgy planning and readings, and discussion. The process should be either planned prior to engagement or immediately afterwards to allow enough time (12 months). Some pieces of the process are done individually and others can be done in a group setting. A Marriage Team/Mentor Couples will conduct these sessions.

The Marriage process should be started for all couples getting married in 2023 and can be started for couples getting married in 2022. For more details, please call the parish office at (717) 697-8716.
