Marriage Preparation

Congratulations on your engagement! We are so excited for you and the gift that your marriage will be to each other, our parish, and the world!

As soon as you get engaged, please contact the parish office at (734) 878-3161 or email Ron and Lisa Abbott at with your information so we can get your marriage preparation under way. After meeting with our marriage prep coordinators, Ron and Lisa, we will be able to help determine a time/date for your wedding.

Ron and Lisa will review all of the information needed to complete the formation period to help you receive and give of yourself more fully in the sacrament of marriage.

Our parish uses the Witness to Love program and follows the Diocesan guidelines for marriage preparation and Natural Family Planning preparation. You will also need to complete The Search on as a couple or another Gospel encounter, which our marriage prep coordinators will help you decide on. The Search series explains the Truths of the Catholic Faith through beautiful and engaging video. To register for your free membership, follow these instructions: Getting started with – free membership!

With restrictions still in place in the state of Michigan, the couple will also need to take a class online called “Love takes Learning.” Please use the link that Ron and Lisa send you, instead of just signing up independently, as we won’t be able to verify that you’ve taken the class otherwise, and it’s less expensive through the link that you will be given.

We are excited for the formation that is offered!
