Deepen Your Knowledge

Congratulations on your engagement! Matrimony celebrates the love of a man and a woman for each other. Our Coordinator of Ministries assists you in planning the church details for your special day.  

Matrimony Preparation

The Archdiocese of Chicago requires all couples to attend a marriage preparation program called pre-Cana. This one-day program helps couples develop a better understanding of the sacrament, evaluate and deepen their readiness to live married life, and gain insights into themselves as individuals and as a couple. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, this is a virtual session.
