Under the regulations issued by our Southwark Diocese,
a couple must give the priest,six months’ notice of their intention to marry.
This is usually not a problem as the wedding
is planned well in advance.
The couple should approach the priest as soon as they make a decision to marry.
The priest will book their chosen date in the parish diary and make arrangements to meet with them for a series of instructions.
priest will also provide an application form for the Diocesan Marriage Preparation course which is obligatory upon all couples who wish to marry in the Catholic Church.
