Couples wishing to marry must make an appointment to see Fr Keith at least six months before the proposed date of the wedding. He will outline the documents needed and the details of the marriage preparation course.
The couple are obliged to attend a marriage preparation course, designed to help them reflect on their future marriage relationship and to talk honestly and deeply about their future. Self identity, roles, expectations of each other in areas of money, sex, friends, children, family, religion and the Church’s beliefs about marriage are some of the topics covered.
After completing the course and submitting all the required documents, the next meeting will deal with more paperwork and the Pre-Nuptial inquiry will be done. Guidance will be provided for the music, Scripture Readings and the details of the ceremony itself.
