Congratulations on your engagement! We are so excited about helping you both prepare for a beautiful, lifelong marriage.
If you would like to get married at St. Mary’s, your first step is a meeting with our Pastor. The marriage preparation process takes between 6-12 months to complete, and dates fill up in advance, so we recommend setting up an appointment with him as soon as possible to get the process rolling.
