Congratulations on your plans to marry!
Prior to the celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage, classes are required to help the couple focus on various dimensions of a Catholic marriage. Several options are available to complete this requirement. Please talk with the priest presiding at your marriage about the option that might be best for you.
- The Diocese of Pittsburgh offers a series for four classes at St. Paul Cathedral in Oakland. For dates, registration materials and more information, please click here.
- Engaged Encounter weekends are offered in a retreat-like setting from a Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. For dates, registration materials and more information, please click here.
- Parishes throughout the diocese offer pre-marriage classes throughout the year. You may attend any of these and then present the certificate of completion to the priest celebrating your marriage. Please click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page for schedules.
