Engaged? Congratulations! Now What?
Friday, February 14, 2020
Congratulations! Because the Catholic Church and your diocesan community wants couples to form strong, lasting marriages, all engaged couples wishing to marry in the Diocese of Covington are required to:
For more information the programs required by the Diocese of Covington, please visit them online!
- Contact the parish priest at least nine to twelve months before your wedding to set an initial appointment and to start your marriage preparations.
- Attend one of the three marriage preparation programs three to six months prior to your wedding. Since marriage preparation programs often fill quickly, it is wise to register two to three months before the program date.
- Attend a certified Natural Family Planning course. It is preferable to attend this course after attending your marriage preparation program, if possible. NFP courses require a three month commitment and fill quickly, so register early.
