Over the years, the Catholic community has increasingly recognized that a good marriage requires good preparation. St Margaret Mary Parish invites you to make the most of your engagement period, taking time for deeper dialogue, greater trust and sharing your hopes and dreams, your convictions and values regarding your marriage.

We ask you to begin your formal preparation as soon as you make the decision to marry and at least 9-12 months prior to the proposed wedding date.

To register for the marriage preparation program, contact the Parish Office at (717) 233-3062 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
