Planning

We had to meet with a priest at our church today to start the preparation for the wedding. Apparently we are a little behind schedule...oh well. He told me he was going to call me and then didn't.

So we got the low down on what we need to do. We have to meet with him at least 3 times to do paper work and "get to know you" stuff. We aren't doing a whole mass with the wedding because that is annoying and I don't want it. And the priest is totally cool with that, thank god. I was hoping he didn't turn out to be a strict holy roller type guy, and he isn't. I mean when a priest says "cool" and "awesome", he is pretty much ok in my book.

We still need to get into a Pre-Cana class. Which is a class you have to take in order to be married in the Catholic church. Basically it's like pre-marital counseling. It gives you a chance to talk about things you may not have discussed and how to deal with things. I like the idea and I have been told that it is helpful. My brother in law is Jewish and he and my sister took the class and he thought it was very helpful. So we will see how that all pans out.

Well that's all I have for today.

bran and i had a chat with the preacher who married us. he gave us a psych test that he wasn't qualified to either give or interpret, but without it he wouldn't marry us. we ignored the results. we managed to miss the classes because we were older and he figured that we knew what we were doing.

dykewife - yeah we are going to get the test too. The priest said it was just agree or disagree statements and then it's sent out to be graded. He said he doesn't do it, but will go over it with us at a later date. He said he finds it interesting to see how couples answer and it can open up a dialog between us. We actually need a certificate of completion for the class, so we kind of have to go.
