Marriage is a Sacrament in the Roman Catholic tradition. In order to receive the Sacrament of Marriage at St. Henry Parish, at least one of the individuals must be a baptized Catholic. If either person has been previously married, the preparation time may take longer.

We ask that you contact the parish at least 6 months before the proposed wedding date. The pre-marriage preparation includes taking part in a counseling and seminar program in addition to meeting with the parish priest/deacon to plan the ceremony. A wedding hostess will be assigned to the couple to help with the coordination of the church for the wedding. She will be available to help answer questions regarding the church environment and will assist with the wedding rehearsal and wedding.

To enroll in our Pre-Marriage Program, please call the parish office at 503-665-9129.
