A Message from Rev. Msgr. Michael P. Shugrue

Congratulations on your engagement! As your wedding day plans continue to unfold, I am certain the day you both have envisioned all your lives will be as beautiful as you’ve imagined. The Church not only shares in your hope for this beautiful day, but for each day that will follow and will become a lifetime together as husband and wife.

Though the culture today may suggest that the decision to marry is of little value, or that a lifelong joyful marriage is not possible, the Church will remain by your side throughout your lifetime to affirm that truly “with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

In the Diocese of Raleigh, we offer a process of marriage preparation that is designed to accompany you in your intention to love one another, together with Christ, in sacramental marriage. Each part of this process is outlined on our webpages and in our brochure, in order to guide you through the steps of a rewarding marriage preparation experience.

I pray that Christ continues to guide, strengthen, and bless your love for one another in such a way that all who cross your paths may recognize Christ by the witness of your lives together.

Sincerely yours in Christ Jesus,
Monsignor Michael P. Shugrue
