Congratulations on your engagement! We look forward to celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage with you. Please review our wedding policy before contacting the parish office to set a wedding date. Wedding dates are reserved by calling the parish office at 363-7505, ext. 100 and secured with a $125 non-refundable deposit.
Once a wedding date has been set, you will register for a preliminary marriage session, which is held at 10 am on the second Saturday of the month in the parish meeting room. During this session, you will meet with the Pastor and Director of Liturgy & Music and complete a premarital inventory.
A minimum of six months is needed for marriage preparation. During this time, you will need to attend a diocesan weekend retreat. You will meet with the Director of Liturgy & Music as well as your assigned Sponsor Couple and Wedding Coordinator. The Director of Liturgy & Music will help you select appropriate music. The sponsor couple, during a series of meetings, will review with you the results of the premarital inventory. The wedding coordinator will assist you in planning the details of your wedding ceremony.
The Rite of Marriage in the Catholic Church states that the bride and groom are the ministers of the wedding liturgy. Our pastor, parish staff, sponsor couple, and wedding coordinator look forward to assisting you in preparing for not only your wedding ceremony, but for a marriage that will last a lifetime.
Preliminary Marriage Sessions
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
