The Diocese of Charleston requires at least six (6) months of preparation prior to the desired wedding date.
Those requesting a wedding at Our Lady of Perpetual Help should be registered and active members of the parish for at least (6) months. However, we understand that often couples get married in a locale that is more convenient to one or both sides of the family. The 6-month preparation includes several meetings. No wedding date should be set before initially meeting with the priest.
A booklet with more information on this may be obtained through the parish office.
