The reception of a sacrament is a most important moment in the life of a member of the Church community, and careful preparation should be made. St John XXIII, offers a time of preparation to those who are to receive sacraments, to enable them to enter more fully into these great mysteries of our faith.
In accordance with the norms required by canon law, six month notice must be given whether the marriage is to take place here or abroad, in order to enable the required preparation to take place.
Please make an appointment to see Fr. Paul at least six months prior to the proposed date.
Marriage Preparation Course
The Preparation Program includes ‘Preparation for Marriage’ or Pre-Cana weekend course. This provides engaged couples with the opportunity to seriously consider and talk about some of the important issues they will encounter in marriage and family life. The course is led by a team composed of married couples from the Parish and a priest. Marriage preparation is a requirement for couples wising to marry in the Catholic Church.
For the Marriage Preparation Course, please register and fill up the Marriage Preparation form or contact the parish office.
