Congratulations on your engagement!  Ascension Parish and the Kettering Catholic Community is a beautiful place to begin your life together as husband and wife and we are delighted to be a part of your journey towards your wedding day and your lifelong marriage in Christ! 

Couples need to begin their preparation six to twelve months before the desired wedding date. You will have an initial meeting with the Pastor after which your date will be set.  Please do not reserve a reception hall, caterer, photographer, etc., until after this initial meeting.

In preparation for this meeting, click on the links below.  Please fill out the Couple's Information Form and the Wedding Preparation Questions and email them to the Pastor, Father Ed Pratt at  When he receives these forms he will contact you to set up a meeting date and time.
