Welcome to Holy Family Parish, Nazareth, PA


We are happy to assist you during this very exciting time. To inquire about the Sacrament of Marriage at Holy Family Parish please contact the Parish Office to make an appointment to meet with one of the clergy. Sacrament preparation includes taking the Pre-Cana online course as well as the FOCCUS Study through the Allentown Diocese.

In Pre-Cana you will work through course content, you will receive the guidance and facilitation of a certified instructor couple, who you will be paired with.            FOCCUS stands for "Facilitate Open, Couple, Communication, Understanding and Study." The FOCCUS Inventory is designed to help engaged couples appreciate their unique relationship. 

Ordinarily the period of preparation requires a minimum of six months. Weddings are ordinarily celebrated at 4PM on a Friday or at 11AM or 2PM on Saturdays.

Please visit the Diocese of Allentown website once you have met with a Priest to register for Pre-Cana and FOCCUS classes. You can do so at: http://www.allentowndiocese.org/catholic-life/family-life/marriage-preparation/
