One of the parish priests or deacons will be happy to help as you prepare for this important sacrament. Please call the parish office at least ten months prior to the date of the intended wedding. In order to assure the availability of the church and staff, arrangements with the parish should precede all other wedding plans.
After an initial meeting with the priest or deacon, the couple will have the option of choosing which marriage formation program they would prefer:
- Parish Mentor Couple plus “God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage” Diocesan seminar – a personalized approach in which the engaged couple meets 4-6 times with a couple from the parish and also joins with other couples for a 1-day seminar hosted by the Diocese.
- Engaged Encounter – an intensive weekend program
For more information, please see the brochure from the Harrisburg Diocese.
