Matrimony

A couple wishing to marry at St. Jane Frances de Chantal Church should contact one of the parish priests a minimum of six months prior to the intended date of the wedding. At least one of the parties must be a member of the parish or, if you are not a member, you must have immediate family in the parish. A Marriage Preparation Course (offered in the fall, winter and spring) is required.  Do not set a date until you have met with a priest.

Several other initiatives and programs minister to engaged and married couples:

For Your Marriage (http://www.foryourmarriage.org) is an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops that provides resources for engaged and married couples.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter (http://www.wwme.org) sponsors weekends locally for couples who want to turn their good marriage into a great marriage.

Retrouvaille (http://www.retrouvaille.org) sponsors weekends locally that  provides the tools needed to rediscover a loving marriage relationship.
