Marriage preparation
Congratulations on your engagement! We would like to help you prepare to celebrate your wedding at Holy Family Parish, one of the most beautiful churches on the South Shore.

Before arranging for your reception, please contact one of the priests of the parish at least six months in advance of your planned date. Couples need to sit down with a priest before any date can be booked.

We require a Marriage Preparation (Pre-Cana) course prior to the wedding. Couples are free to choose from among many programs offered by the Archdiocese.

You can get more information on Marriage Preparation at the
Archdiocese of Boston's website, or at Holy Family's Marriage Prep document


The Archdiocese of Boston is offering a NEW marriage preparation program 4 times in this upcoming year (November, December, January and May). For a full listing of all marriage prep programs and more information on this new program please visit:
