Engaged to be married?
Before you make and commitments (hall, band, etc.) contact your parish priest. Meeting with him will give you information about marriage and what is involved in the preparation process. These articles from the Diocese of Grand Rapids and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops offer an overview of what is involved.
Grand Valley State University students are seen as members of the St. Luke University Parish. The easiest means of marriage preparation is to work with Fr. Chuck or Fr. Brad for your marriage preparation - no matter where you wedding will take place. They will take care of the paperwork, permissions, and the necessary prepartion sessions. Please contact them 6-9 months before your proposed wedding date.
Weddings in relationship with St. Luke/GVSU can take place in the Parish Center, Cook-DeWitt Center auditorium or the Cathedral of St. Andrew (downtown Grand Rapids). Please contact one of the priests for more information.
