Wedding arrangements should be made at least 6 months prior to the intended wedding date.
Couples should contact one of the parish priests as soon as possible to schedule an appointment and to begin the arrangements.
A Pre-Cana Day engaged couples retreat is needed prior to the wedding date. Engaged couples that have contacted one of the parish priests to be married will be sent a letter of invitation to the parish Pre-Cana Day Retreat at the appropriate time. Pre-Cana Day requirements can be met at St. John Vianney Parish or another local parish.
Married and Engaged couples can learn more about the sacrament of marriage and the many teachings of the Catholic Church on related topics. You will find the For Your Marriage website to be a good resource for information on living the sacrament of marriage and much more.

Wedding Old Testament Readings
“Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”
