If you have recently got engaged, congratulations! What a beautiful season of life you are now in.

It is important to meet with your Parish Priest on a regular basis for marriage preparation. We recommend at least once a month for six months to one year.

Before meeting with your Parish Priest, please see the links below and read the information provided.


For more information about what is required, please visit the Diocese website and read the information provided. http://chch.catholic.org.nz/preparingforyourwedding 

We also encourage that you contact the John Paul II Center for Life for information about a retreat weekend that they run for engaged couples. http://www.jp2.org.nz/

If you plan on getting married in St. Teresa’s Parish, please contact the parish office to book the church and hall for rehearsal time, the ceremony and reception.

For more information and to arrange marriage prep meetings, please contact Fr. Antoine the Parish Priest.
