Holy Family Parish has the responsibility of ensuring that marriages recognized and blessed by the Catholic Church will be lived in the faith.

Preparation and instruction are essential to being married in the Catholic Church. The first step is to contact a Priest or Deacon regarding the marriage preparation process after you are formmally engaged and at least 6 months before your anticipated marriage.  (2023 Marriage_Getting Married in the Diocese of Evansville)

Marriage preparation involves assessment of the couple's communication and compatibility, assessment of their faith commitment, participation in UNVEILED retreat through the Diocese, and wedding ceremony plans with the presiding priest.
