Marriage Preparation

Congratulations upon your engagement!  St. Peter's is pleased to help you as an engaged couple to prepare for the Sacrament of Matrimony.

Now that you are engaged, here is what you need to do:

  • Contact our office manager, Theresa DiSipio, at 301-898-5111 x12, to begin the process before you begin to book sites for receptions!

  • At your initial meeting with Fr. Chuck, Deacon John or Deacon Jerry, please bring recent copies (within 6 months) of your baptismal certificates, if applicable.  If you are not a member of St. Peter's parish, please contact the church in which you were baptized to request a recent copy of the certificate.

If either you or your fiancé have been previously married, bring a copy of the divorce decree and the annulment decree.*

*Please note that an annulment for a previous marriage, regardless of where the marriage took place, is required before you can marry in the Catholic Church.  This can be a lengthy process, so apply for the annulment a minimum of one year in advance of your plans to marry.

To apply for an annulment please contact one of our parish advocates: Carolyn Nolan at 301-898-5111 x19, or Deacon Jerry Jennings at

  • Once all the requirements for marriage are met, you may then select a date and time for your wedding.

  • For Church Use & Scheduling, please call Theresa DiSipio at 301-898-5111 x12.
