The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament. –  CCC 1601

Congratulations! On your engagement! It requires a minimum eight-month preparation period before the wedding.  The marriage prep process is designed not just for a beautiful wedding day, but to build the type of marriage that will last till death do us part.

The sacrament of marriage is one that brings great blessings to the couple, to their family and friends, and the Church as a whole. We strive to prepare couples for not only their wedding day, but for a lifetime of grace- filled blessings in the relationship that will help lead them to eternal salvation.
