If you are interested in receiving the sacrament of marriage at Holy Family, please read through the requirements below. When you are ready to inquire about reserving a date for your wedding, please contact Fr. Phil Egan about the marriage preparation program: [email protected] or 816-436-9200, ext 304.


Requirements for Marriage at Holy Family Catholic Church

  • One person within the couple should be a registered and active member of Holy Family Parish for at least six months.
  • Completion of the marriage preparation program, which takes about nine months.
  • A date for the ceremony may be set after the couple has completed the initial meeting of the marriage preparation program.

An introductory marriage preparation class or initial consultation with Fr. Phil is the first step. During this meeting, a pre-marital inventory will be completed. Over the next few months, meetings with the married couple focusing on issues affecting marriage or participation in an Engaged Encounter weekend will be required. Additional sessions with Fr. Phil Egan are also scheduled.
