Wedding dates should be reserved as soon as possible, but no later than six months in advance of the desired date. Weddings may be scheduled in the church on Saturdays at 1:00pm and 3:00pm only. The chapel may be reserved for smaller weddings and vow renewals. All wedding arrangements are to be made by appointment with a priest.
Please contact our business office (773.631.4127) to arrange a meeting with a priest and obtain additional information regarding your wedding at St. Juliana Parish. Our wedding FAQs (on the sidebar) may help answer some questions in the meantime. You are welcome to have a priest friend or family member celebrate your wedding mass but you will still need an introductory meeting with one of our clergy members to begin the process.
All couples are required to complete an Archdiocesan-certified PreCana program prior to the wedding day. The Archdiocesan Family Ministries Office provides PreCana and many helpful resources for marriage preparation.
PreCana Marriage Preparation Program
An engaged couple marrying in the Catholic Church is required to attend a PreCana marriage preparation course through an archdiocesan-approved program. PreCana, in conjunction with meetings with the priest/celebrant, provides engaged couples with a comprehensive process for preparing for and living a marriage for a lifetime.
You may complete the PreCana program offered through the archdiocesan Family Ministries Office. The facilitators and engaged couples work together to pray, reflect, discuss and share their stories and their life journeys. There is no cost to attend a PreCana program.
