Sacraments at the Service of Communion and Mission of the Faithful - "Two other sacraments, Holy Orders and Matrimony, are directed towards the salvation of others, if they contribute as well to personal salvation, it is through service to others that they do so. They confer a particular mission in the Church and serve to build up the People of God. Through these sacraments those already consecrated by Baptism and Confirmation for the common priesthood of all the faithful can receive particular consecrations." - CCC # 1534-1535

Marriage - "It can seem difficult, even impossible, to bind oneself for life to another human being. This makes is all the more important to proclaim the Good News that God loves us with a definitive and irrevocable love, that married couples share in this love, that it supports and sustains them, and that by their own faithfulness they can witnesses to God's faithful love. Spouses who with God's grace give this witness, often in very difficult conditions, deserve the gratitude and support of the ecclesial community" - CCC # 1648


Marriage Preparation Program

Congratulations on becoming engaged! This is such a wonderful and exhilarating period in your life and we are delighted for you! The Sacrament of Matrimony is incredibly powerful and has the effect of forever joining you together in an unbreakable bond of love. Your marriage will also be a daily witness of God’s love in our parish and our world. At the Church of the Resurrection, we are eager to help you prepare for your future life as a spouse and parent, so please contact us as soon as possible so that we can help you to approach the sacrament in a good way and provide everything you need to fulfill all that the Church expects of you as a couple.

Preparations for Marriage begin at least 9 months prioto your wedding date. Please contact the Parish Office at (517) 482-4749 to begin the process of preparation or schedule a meeting with Fr. Steve here

"Because Christian marriage is a sacrament, the Catholic Church wants couples to be well-prepared. Dioceses and parishes offer marriage preparation to help couples develop a better understanding of the sacrament; to evaluate and deepen their readiness to live married life; and to gain insights into themselves as individuals and as a couple." (USCCB Guidelines on Marriage Preparation)

During those months here is what you can expect:

  1. An initial meeting with Fr. Steve, the pastor. At that meeting you will be given the Wedding Manual.
  2. Meet with a Sponsor Couple for 5-7 sessions, which includes 2 sessions filling out the FOCUS inventory.
  3. Attend 4 "WE CARE" Communications Classes. Upon completion, send the certificate to Fr. Steve.
  4. Attend 4 Catholic Information Classes, which will be held at various Lansing parishes.
  5. Attend 3 Natural Family Planning sessions (1 per month for 3 months).
  6. Engaged couples should contact the church where they were baptized and ask them to send a copy of their baptismal certificates to Resurrection Catholic Church.

Six months prior to the wedding, you will begin the practical arrangements for the wedding itself, such a arranging and choosing music for the service, deciding on which scripture passages will be read, drawing up the Prayers of the Faithful, and so on.

A follow up meeting will be arranged with the sponsor couple about 6 months after the wedding.
