Because Christian marriage is a sacrament, the Catholic Church wants couples to be well-prepared. Dioceses and parishes offer marriage preparation to help couples develop a better understanding of the sacrament; to evaluate and deepen their readiness to live married life; and to gain insights into themselves as individuals and as a couple.
For couples, planning to marry at Blessed Sacrament Church (BSC) and St. Vincent de Paul Church (SVC) or any other Catholic parishes are asked to contact the parish priests six to nine months before your anticipated wedding date to begin the marriage preparation process.
