Marriage Preparation

Congratulations on your engagement and your upcoming wedding! Your journey is just beginning and it is important that you plan for your lifetime commitment together.

A Marriage Preparation Program is an opportunity for you to gather with other engaged couples and focus on your marriage beyond the wedding. A facilitator presents skills and guides a discussion that will assist you in living out a lifetime commitment in marriage together. You will be amazed how these insights will strengthen your relationship and help build for a better marriage. The archdiocese of Detroit has more details about the Marriage Preparation Program.

Wedding Plans

One member of the engaged couple must be a participating registered member of OLOW at least one year before wedding date.  The couple must contact the pastor at least six months in advance of the anticipated wedding date to reserve the church and fulfill the required preparation for marriage.  



Below are samples of suggested music for your wedding.  You are welcome to choose other songs out of our church hymnal.  Please note that the recordings are from the actual artists and the voices and instrumentation does not reflect what will be at your wedding.  Additional musicians are available.  Contact Bob Amore,, to choose your wedding music after you have reviewed these selections.
