The services provided for all weddings include

  • Use of the worship space

The Cathedral staff assists those preparing to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage by offering a Wedding Workshop four times per year.  These liturgy-planning sessions help the couple with music selection and ceremony planning.

The Archdiocese of Louisville requires a 6-month preparation period for couples seeking marriage.  All couples are required to complete the FOCCUS Instrument (pre-marriage inventory) and one form of a marriage preparation program
