Sacrament of Matrimony

At least one member of a couple wishing to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony at St. Josephs must be a registered and active parishioner.

Couples must make their marriage preparation a priority in their life. A minimum six-month preparation time is established by Archdiocesan policy and includes several events with the Archdiocese of Duluth and the St. Josephs requiring a significant time commitment on the part of the couple. Those who do not fulfill these requirements will need to postpone their marriage until they are fulfilled in their entirety. Click here for more information.
