If you intend to marry in the Diocese of Saint Cloud, you will follow all diocesan policies.
If you or your fiancé are in the military or live outside the area, it is the responsibility of the celebrant to make sure the Fully Engaged inventory is taken, scored here, discussed with you and areas of concern are shared with the other location. The priest or deacon assists you in marriage preparation and/or helps you with referral to a pastor in your respective locations.
If both of you reside outside our diocese, you must be in contact with the priest or deacon of the parish in which you intend to be married. He will discuss with you the marriage preparation requirements and then be in contact with the priest or deacon in the diocese of your residence to convey to him the preparation that is required.
If one of you is a resident, you will attend the Marriage Preparation Course together. If not possible, the resident must still complete the Marriage Preparation Course alone, and will be provided with materials for the non-participant.
