Marriage Preparation

Congratulations on your engagement!  When you come to the Catholic Church to ask for a sacramental marriage, you are asking not only for God's blessing on your wedding day, but for God's involvement in your entire married life.

Since marriage is a solemn and holy commitment, the Church requires engaged couples to partake in a preparation process to ensure your understanding and willingness to make this type of commitment. 

Preparation process includes:

  • Initial appointment with Fr. Bob or Fr. Joe  to set a date and receive information on preparing for your wedding.
  • Meetings with a married couple from Divine Mercy who are trained facilitators in marriage preparation(FOCCUS).
  • Registration and completion of an Archdiocesan Engagement Enrichment Day.
  • Follow-up meeting(s) with your celebrant.

To set up an appointment with either Fr. Bob or Fr. Joe please call the office at 414-762-6810 or e-mail them at
