Booking Your Wedding

The process of booking your wedding at SS. Cyril & Methodius begins by contacting the
parish office at 630-257-2776 or email to secretary@stcyril.org so that you might inquire
about available dates.  Our most popular day is Saturday with weddings held at 11 AM, 1 PM

or 3 PM. Once your date is booked, a wedding questionnaire is sent to you

to be completed and returned along with a non-refundable $100 deposit. This deposit

secures your date.

 

Wedding Preparation

Each engaged couple is required to complete a PreCana marriage preparation class. 
Please visit www.archchicago.org  (Office and Ministries; Marriage, Marriage Preparation

Courses) to begin registration for your PreCana class. SS. Cyril & Methodius

does offer an in-home PreCana which a parish couple would host at
their home.  Please contact Sue at smnosal@att.net for specific dates and
times. 

 

A pre-marriage inventory, better known as FOCCUS, is also a requirement. 
Information from Foccus Inc. will be sent to you via email.  Two Witness
Affidavits are also required for both the bride and the groom.  These affidavits will be given
to you when you meet with your presider. 

 

In the document Celebrating Marriage at SS. Cyril & Methodius Parish you will find all the

necessary information you need in order to be completely prepared for your big day in our

church. You will see details on planning the liturgy, frequently asked questions, fees, flowers, photography and videotaping.  Please closely read  Celebrating Marriage at SS. Cyril & Methodius Parish, as it even includes very important details such as dimensions of our center aisle, how many pews and so on.  We want your wedding day to run as smoothly as you do; therefore, adhering to these guidelines is very important.
