Weddings / Marriage Preparation Class / Scheduling

Congratulations on your engagement!

The Catholic Church requires a preparation period

of at least six months prior to the wedding. 

There are several components to the preparation process

in the Diocese of Gaylord and we can assist you through

every step along the way here at St. Francis of Assisi Parish.

If you would like to be married here at St. Francis,

please call Shelley Brown at the parish office

at 231-947-4620 ext. 252. 


She will answer your initial questions and assist you

throughout the marriage prep and wedding planning process,

whether you are a St. Francis parishioner or have requested

to have a destination wedding here at St. Francis.

St. Francis offers a Marriage Prep Class in the Winter. 

Classes are held on two (2) separate Saturdays -

one in January and one in February -

and are all day sessions.


Class dates for 2022 are as follows:

Saturday, January 29, 2022

Saturday, February 5, 2022

If you will be doing your marriage preparation

here at St. Francis, please call Shelley Brown at the

parish office to register for the classes.


We look forward to helping you during this important time in your life!
