Arrangements for weddings must be made in person by the parties to the proposed marriage at least six months in advance of the wedding and prior to setting a firm date. This will allow sufficient time for the couple to complete the required FOCCUS survey, to attend the pre-marriage programs and to prepare a proper celebration of the sacrament.
Catholic Annulments: Often individuals are not fully participating in the life of the Church because of divorce and remarriage. Others, civilly divorced, have questions regarding the previous marriage. One of our priests will happily meet to discuss the status and possibilities of these particular situations. They can be reached by calling 636-561-6611.
From Saint John Paul II (1988, Christifideles Laici)
“Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights – for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture – is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination”.
