St. Mary’s celebrates with and is deeply committed to you as you begin your married life in Christ.
The process of marriage preparation includes the following essentials

- Take a FOCCUS inventory and meet to review results.
- Participate in a Pre-Marriage Retreat. A listing of options will be given to you. Additional resources may be found at Archdiocesan Marriage Resources.
