Marriage Preparation

The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of their whole life. It is given by God for the good of the spouses, for the building up of the Church and for the procreation and education of offspring. The covenant of marriage has been raised by Christ to the dignity of a Sacrament. Before a wedding date can be set, the couple are required to meet with the Parish Priest 6 months in advance. Fees for a wedding at St. Michael's are $150 for the Church and $100 for live streaming (optional). The musician fees are discussed directly with the musicians. 

A marriage preparation course also must be completed before the wedding can be celebrated. The Preparation course at St. Michael's has been suspended until further notice. However, there are three alternative options for marriage Preparation:

1.  Contact St. Peter's Cathedral

2. Catholic Engaged Encounter 

3.  Contact Dr. Bruce Tallman for his Marriage Prep Program

The Parish will need a certificate demonstrating the completion of the Program
