Couples preparing for marriage are to make arrangements with the pastor at least six months in advance of the wedding date. Preparations include the Pre-Cana classes and the Prepare-Enrich
questionnaire. For further information about Marriage in the Catholic Church please contact Father George at the rectory.
Pre-Cana Classes in Lorain County are held on Sundays, seven times a year, at St. Patrick Parish in Wellington. A team of four couples, plus a priest, present talks to engaged couples about Christian married life. Key aspects of marriage are discussed such as communication,faith, the real world, and sexual relationships. Engaged couples are asked to reflect on these talks through a process called dialog.
