Congratulations on your Engagement! 

We are excited you chose our parish to celebrate this holy sacrament. Our Lady of the Rosary engage couples in the sacrament and we desire to help couples form strong, lasting marriages.  Couples who wish to marry at Our Lady of the Rosary are asked to:

  • Prior to planning contact Mari Cragun mcragun@olrsd.org our Wedding Coordinator.
  • At least nine months before the desired date and any other arrangements are made (i.e. hall rental, invitation printing, attire selection, etc.), two previously unmarried people meet with Deacon Stephen, and begin gathering the required documentation to register the couple to go through two diocesan marriage preparation programs. The number of meetings will vary.  Contact Deacon Stephen at the Pastoral Center Office to schedule meeting or to discuss resolving prior marriages, (619) 234-4820 or via email, deaconstephen@olrsd.org.
  • More specific questions? Contact Mari Cragun in the parish office at mcragun@olrsd.org.


Most importantly at the time of your engagement, the Church welcomes you to this sacrament of Marriage in the spirit of Jesus who said:

This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
(John 15:12-13)
