We welcome you as you prepare for your wedding!
Because the Church wishes couples the best of married and family life, the Diocese of Fall River provides a program designed especially to assist those couples where one or both have been married before.
Working with a team couple (who are themselves remarried) participants are encouraged to examine subjects, which include:
Bringing closure to the previous marriage
The effect of our backgrounds
Challenges and joys of remarriage
Family blending or becoming parents
Relationship with God...and much more
The goal is to stimulate thought and discussion about the future and to offer tools which can help to build a strong marriage.
Prior to meeting with the team couple the engaged couple will complete some preparation exercises.
To register for remarriage preparation, couples should fill out the registration form and indicate Remarriage in the space "Program Chosen." You will be contacted to set a date.
Speak to the priest or deacon preparing you for marriage, or call our office, if you have any questions regarding the ReMarriage Preparation Program.
If you have specific questions about a previous marriage, or have not yet obtained an annulment, please first contact your local parish or the
