... and the two shall become one. + Matthew 19:5
The celebration of a wedding is certainly a special time in the life of a young couple, their families and friends and also their parish community. The celebration of love between a man and a woman is a grace-filled moment where the love of God is truly present. In fact, marriage was instituted as one of the seven sacraments of the Church by Jesus himself.
Every wedding celebration is the beginning of a successful marriage. Such a lifetime commitment is not to be taken lightly. With that in mind, time is needed to prepare each couple for a lifetime together. The requirements of Civil law, Canon law, and Diocesan regulations must all be met.
Any couple contemplating Marriage should contact the pastor at least six to nine months prior to setting a wedding date in order to begin the preparation process. To schedule an appointment with the pastor, please call the parish office (724-845-8191).
