Wedding Preparation

Thank you for considering sharing this special Sacrament with us. We ask that all couples who are asking to celebrate their marriage at Ascension be connected to the community. The year long process of meeting with the pastor, participating in marriage preparation, and planning the liturgy requires that couples notify the Parish Office as soon as possible to set a date. For more information or to schedule an appointment with Fr. Hurlbert, please contact the Office at 708-848-2703.

Marriage Preparation

Married couples who have been married at least 5 years go through training in order to work with an engaged couple. After completing an Assessment Evaluation, the couple meets in the mentor's home for 2-3 sessions to focus on issues such as communication, conflict resolution, family issues, finances, sexuality and other areas of concern.

Wedding Music Workshops are conducted throughout the year by the Music Director. The purpose of the workshop is to assist the engaged couple in the planning and preparation of the prayers and music of the wedding liturgy. Consult the bulletin for the Workshop dates and for information on registration or email David Anderson.
