Toward Marraige

 Taking the First Steps Towards Marriage

 On the threshold of his public life Jesus performs his first sign–at his mother’s request–during a wedding feast.  The Church attaches great importance to Jesus’ presence at the wedding of Cana.  She sees in it  the confirmation of the goodness of marriage and the proclamation that thenceforth marriage will be an efficacious sign of Christ’s presence. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1613


As a couple approaches marriage, the Church believes that “preparation for marriage is of prime importance.” CCC 1632  To this end, the Diocese of New Hampshire offers many opportunities for Marriage Preparation.  The first step is to contact one’s pastor in order to set up an appointment.  From there, the pastor will guide you through the preparation.  A particularly helpful aid is the Sacrament of Matrimony Preparation Flyer offered from the diocese.
