The love between two people is a gift from God. The commitment two people make to be together for the rest of their lives and to accept children from God is sealed before the community and God during the celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage.
Marriage Preparation at St. James provides an opportunity for reflection and discernment on the sacramental and vocational nature of the life-long commitment to marriage. The St. James’ preparation program fulfills the standard marriage preparation requirements for the Archdiocese of St Paul/Minneapolis.
Couples are expected to begin preparation at least one year in advance, please contact the office.
