Polish Marriage Lessons - NJ - Help Needed

Thanks for checking out this topic.
I am US born German/Swedish and getting married to my Polish fiance Iwona in June, with a US wedding. At the end of the summer we are getting married in Poland in her hometown of Bielska-Baila. I am not catholic, I am (hardly) of Christian faith. My understanding is that I need to take marriage lessons. We live in NJ and I am not sure how to go about doing this. Do I need to go to a Polish church to take these classes? I have tried contacting a couple of churches, but I got no response. Should I just go down to the church and ask someone? If so, who do I ask? We live in Hackettstown, but anywhere in Morris County to take classes is fine by me. Does anyone know of a place they recommend? Any help would be appreciated.

Never heard of marriage lessons, but there are plenty of PL churches in NJ.

Depends on where you live.

I would ask to talk to the head priest but make certain they will accept your "lessons" in Poland or you will have to do it again and get everythingin writing. Your Fiance's church should be able to help with what the exact documentation is.

Not to discourage you but my wife and I wanted to have a Polish wedding after our U.S. wedding and the red tape was too much so we bagged the idea and had a party instead, but my wifes family is protestant. Protestant Poles who knew?

They are less rigid than the Catholics.
