I Do.

The grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life

Celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage is an exciting time for most couples. Those planning to marry at Saint John XXIII Parish need to contact Fr. Herb at least six months prior to the marriage. 

Following Diocesan guidelines, couples will have a chance to prepare to live a Christian marriage through the help of pre-marriage counseling (including use of the FOCCUS assessment), mentoring with married lead couples, and preparation for the actual church ceremony.

After several sessions and discussion of the liturgy with Fr. Herb, an appointment will be made with the with Michael Puppos, the Pastoral Associate for Music & Liturgy, to pick music for the ceremony and make arrangements for additional musicians if desired. 

Contact is to be made with Fr. Herb. via e-mail or by calling the parish office.
