Step 1: Approval of Your Wedding

The normative location for a wedding is at a parish church. Typically it is the parish where the bride and groom are registered members or at the home parish of the bride or groom.

  • Registered members of Gesu Parish do not need any documentation before contacting the Wedding Scheduler to reserve a date and time for your wedding.
  • Marquette alumni, if you are not a parishioner at Gesu, we need permission from your home parish in order to perform your wedding. This letter must be received before a reservation is made. Once the letter from your current pastor is received, you may contact the Wedding Scheduler in order to choose a date and time for your wedding.

Step 2: Make a Reservation

Contact the Wedding Coordinator, Jerri von den Bosch, to make a reservation. Please be prepared to give the name and contact information of your presiding priest or deacon.

In your conversations with the Wedding Scheduler, you should decide on Gesu Parish, Campus Ministry at Marquette University, or some other site for marriage preparation.

Once you have made a tentative reservation, a letter welcoming you to Gesu and describing the next steps in the wedding process will be sent to you.

Step 3: Confirm Your Reservation

In order for your reservation to be definite, a one hundred dollar deposit is required. This deposit must be paid within two weeks of receiving your letter from the wedding scheduler. Your cancelled check serves as your official receipt for the wedding date and time. This deposit is non-refundable.
