Couples planning to be married begin their preparations by meeting with the parish priest or deacon prior to formally setting a wedding date. This meeting should occur a minimum of six months prior to the desired date. Engaged couples must attend a weekend retreat, several couple-to-couple meetings and a wedding workshop as part of their preparation. A $100 deposit payable to the Church of Saint Andrew must be received in order to book your wedding date. This deposit becomes non-refundable if the wedding is cancelled.
