Couples who wish to marry at St. Clement Church should call the Parish Office at least 1 year before the proposed marriage date. Once the couple meets with a Priest or Deacon, the date can be reserved on the parish calendar.

As part of the preparation process, couples must participate in one of several programs: the Sponsor Couple program is a series of meetings between a trained married couple and the couple preparing for marriage; the Pre-Cana program is a series of group gatherings bringing together a larger number of couples preparing for marriage; the Engaged Encounter program is a weekend retreat preparation program. Other requirements are explained by the Priest or Deacon who will officiate at the marriage.
