Congratulations on your engagement! Now you want to reserve the Church of the Gesu for your wedding. How do you do that? Follow these steps and everything will fall into place easily.
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.
Contact the Wedding Scheduler, Michael Heimbach, 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.
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.
Available Wedding Dates
Rehearsal times are 5:00pm and 6:00pm on Fridays (the day before the wedding).
