Marriage Preparation Convalidation


cov-img1.jpegThis program is designed for those couples who are married civilly and now wish to marry in the Church. Some couples, because of differences in religious background or, a sense of distance from the Church at the time of their marriage, or due to complicating family situations, were married civilly or in some other manner that did not meet the Catholic Church's legal requirements for a valid church marriage.

This is also the weekend for couples, where one or both of the individuals have a child (children) together or from a previous relationship..

The Church's intention is to provide couples with a sufficient understanding of Catholic Christian marriage to enable them to enter into marriage with integrity and knowledge. If you are interested in learning more, please call 510-893-4711 or see below for Convalidation Weekend Program dates.
