As soon as you have made the decision to marry, and at least six months or more prior to the anticipated wedding date, you should contact the Pastor in order to begin the various steps of the Marriage Preparation Program.
DO NOT CONSIDER YOUR WEDDING DATE CONFIRMED UNTIL THE PRIEST RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PREPARATIONS TELLS YOU SO.
Do not make permanent date commitments with reception halls, caterers, etc. until you have met with the Pastor and have confirmed the date of marriage.
