Couples who wish to marry at the Church of Christ the King must contact Fr. Pat a year in advance of their desired date. The church requires that all couples wishing to marry undergo a time of preparation to deepen their understanding of Christian marriage. This is achieved through discussions with Fr. Pat and by attending a marriage preparation course, led by Marriage Care. Additional the couple will meet with and be supported by a Married couple from the parish who will share their experience of the joys and challenges of Married life and the benefit of Sacramental Marriage.
