Marriage Preparation


Couples planning to be married in the Catholic Church should contact the parish office to set up an appointment with the Pastor to begin the Marriage Preparation process.  Marriage Preparation involves several meetings with the Pastor, participating in an online FOCCUS personality questionnaire, and attending a Marriage Preparation Weekend.  Currently, the weekend is offered by the Diocese of Richmond here at St. Anne's twice a year, generally once in the fall and once in the spring.  Contact the Pastor at least 8 months prior to your requested date for a wedding to be sure there is enough time to complete the Marriage Preparation Process.
