Coronavirus Update from the Office of Marriage and Family Life

In light of the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus, the Archdiocesan Marriage Preparation Conferences for June 6 and July 18, 2020 have been canceled. All participants have been notified and our team is working with all of the couples to provide a plan to fulfill this marriage preparation requirement.

Meetings to plan the wedding liturgy, meetings with the pastor/pastoral staff, and meetings to review the FOCCUS and other pre-marital inventories should still take place virtually, if possible.

Please contact Emily Burds ( for information regarding our Online Marriage Preparation Conference if you are unable to participate in an in-person conference.

We realize this is a heart-breaking time for so many engaged couples whose wedding plans have been significantly altered. We will pray for the peace of all the couples and those walking with them in their preparation.
