The sacrament of Marriage is a vocation of love, unity and self-sacrifice. This most wonderful sacrament is a powerful sign and symbol of the love God has for each of us. We treasure and value the gift of marriage and wish to celebrate it with great joy and faith.
Those couples seeking marriage at the parish are asked to contact the parish office at least 1 year prior to the marriage. This allows sufficient time for us to fill out the needed paperwork while taking the time to journey with couples preparing for their most special day.
Preparation includes meeting with the priest (or deacon) who will be presiding at the celebration in addition to a Marriage Preparation program which takes place at the parish. Alternative arrangements may also be made in consultation with the presider. Our Marriage Prep team consists of married couples who believe that they can make a difference in the married life of a couple by preparing them for some of the challenges they will face in their married life. They provide a weekend program that is comprised of speakers on various topics and includes small group discussions.
