Marriage is a sacrament that is seen as a sign of love that establishes between the spouses a permanent and exclusive bond and covenant sealed by God. The Sacrament confers on the couple the grace they need for attaining holiness in their married life and for the commitment to their children's faith formation.
The St. Joseph, Pillar of Families Marriage Preparation Program helps prepare engaged couples for the commitment of the Sacrament of Matrimony. With the direction of the parish priest, the program uses a team of married couples, called mentor couples, who work with the engaged couple one-on-one. The mentor couples facilitate discussion about various aspects of daily married life through the use of the Witness to Love program. The engaged couples also participate in a Pre-Cana program given by the Family Life Office.
If you are interested in getting married, you should contact the Parish Office at (937) 498-2307 at least six months prior to your proposed wedding date. No date for a wedding will be confirmed until the engaged couple has met with the priest or deacon.
