Preparation


The vocation of Christian marriage demands a serious commitment. Consequently, the Church desires to do all that it can so that couples are adequately prepared to understand and accept the obligations of Christian marriage and to fulfill them faithfully.

Couples are expected to take part in a preparation program which will include meeting with a parish priest, deacon or pastoral associate. The basic process includes:

Session I: Initial meeting with parish priest.

Session II: Participation in PreCana as required by the Archdiocese. For information or to register for PreCana go to www.familyministries.org or call 312-534-8201.

Session III: (OPTIONAL) FOCCUS wedding inventory, One in Christ, or other
marriage preparation program. The priest will assist you with this.

Session IV: Wedding Liturgy planning with priest.

(Please note additional sessions may be required by the priest/deacon celebrating your wedding).

Queen of All Saints pastoral staff wants to help you prepare for your journey of married life. This period of preparation is precious. Engaged couples stand before the Church’s minister, relatives and friends and face one another to proclaim their faithful love and lifelong commitment. It is our hope to help all couples prepare, not only for their wedding day, but for their Christian marriage.
