“A man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife and the two shall become as one.”  

Genesis 2:24

According to the policy of the Diocese of St. Augustine, Florida, a couple planning to be married must make arrangements with the priest at least eight (8) months in advance. The couple meets periodically with the priest as part of the preparation. They also participate in the day-long Pre-Cana Program or an Engaged Encounter weekend.
