Marriage

Marriage

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

  • Meet with Father Talbot several times, beginning at least 6 months prior to your anticipated wedding date. You can email Fr. Talbot or call the parish office at 651-429-7771.
  • 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.
  • Attend one Wedding Liturgy Workshop at St. Mary’s to help you plan your wedding liturgy.
