What should I expect from this meeting? What types of questions will he ask? He told us he will be asking us some questions like why do we feel like it is important to be married in a catholic church. I’m super nervous hopefully all goes well and we are able to set an official date for our wedding!

Our first meeting was pretty casual, more of a “getting to know you” kind of thing. Our priest asked about why we wanted to marry in the church, whether we planned on having kids and what our childhood religious education was like. He asked about our parents marriages, how we resolve conflicts and when was the first time we realized we were in love with each other. Then he separated us and went through the inventory, basically just making sure neither of us was being forced into marriage. And then he gave us the list of things we needed to get together (baptism certificates, affadavits that we haven’t been married before) and told us to sign up for pre-cana or engaged encounter. It was pretty painless!

We had about 3 meetings with out preist before Pre-Cana and God’s Plan for a Joyful Marriage. First just talking & bringing in paperwork, then taking our FOCCUUS inventory, which we enjoyed, then going over our answers. We have another scheduled to discuss Pre-Cana and God’s Plan and to turn in our certificates from attending those. I think we’re done then but I’m not 100% 🙂
