Marriage Formation

Congratulations on Your Engagement!

   Marriage formation here at Sacred Heart begins with an initial visit with Fr. Farrar. Once the couple has been accepted into the marriage formation program, they will engage in three main areas of preparation.

   The first area is comprised of three meetings with Fr. Farrar during which the nature of the human person, love and the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony will be discussed. 

   In the second area, the engaged couple will meet once a week, over a series of weeks, with a married couple trained

in the art of marriage preparation. Should circumstances

not permit this first option, a weekend retreat is an alternative.

    The last segment of preparation deals especially with human sexuality. The engaged couple will participate in person, or through streamed video in a presentation by Dr. Laurie Heap. They will also attend one introductory session of Natural Family Planning.

   Additional requirements are listed below...
