The sacrament of Matrimony is a public and loving commitment of husband and wife to be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ; to love one another with supernatural, tender and fruitful love.  By its grace, they help one another to attain holiness in their married life and in welcoming and educating their children.

A couple desiring to be married must contact a parish priest at least four months before the proposed date of their wedding.  This requirement is to insure adequate time for catechesis and to permit sufficient reflection on your readiness to enter into this sacrament.  Please contact a parish priest before setting a date for your wedding.


Registration is currently closed for Pre-Cana Classes. The next class will take place in early 2018, so check back to see when a date is confirmed and registration opens. We look forward to meeting you!

Please complete the registration form immediately as the class size is limited. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis. Your registration is not complete until we receive your payment. ($68 per couple)  

Payment may be sent to: St. James Catholic Church -- Pre-Cana Class -- 8412 Whitefield Avenue -- Savannah, GA 31406
