St. Monica’s Church Wedding – Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding. We are excited to be able to celebrate with you. While your wedding day is a very important day in your life, it is good to keep in mind that what we will be celebrating is your commitment to a life-long marriage. In order to help you prepare for your marriage, as well as for your wedding day, there are a number of steps you will need to take before the big day.

This booklet will help walk you through what needs to be done and assist you in the preparation process. Please know that we are here to help you along the way, so please feel free to ask your questions so we can make your wedding day a special day, but more importantly so we can help to make your marriage be established on a solid foundation.

The Formation Process

TheChurchwantsyourmarriagetolastforeverandbelife-givingtobothofyou. To help you, we will guide you through a process called formation. There are three parts.

1. FOCCUS Inventory | The FOCCUS inventory helps to identify strengths and challenges in your relationship. A trained married couple from St. Monica will walk you through the process and help you to identify places you can continue to grow and develop.

2. Engaged Enrichment Day | The Archdiocese of Milwaukee offers a day-long event that explores what God and the Church say about marriage and what it offers to you as a family and what your family can offer the world as a sign of God’s love. Your priest or deacon will give you a list of dates and a registration form.

3. Meetingwithyourpriestordeacon|Afteryourinitialmeetingwithyourpriest or deacon to start the process and select a date, you will meet several more times with him. During these meetings, you will get to know each other more, talk about what makes a strong Catholic marriage and plan your wedding liturgy.

We hope these opportunities will help your relationship to grow and provide a solid foundation for the two of you to build your life on.
