Sacrament of Marriage

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values. Registered parishioners, who have been members of our Sunday worshiping community for at least 3 months, are asked to notify the rectory at least six (6) months prior to the planned wedding day. A marriage preparation course (Pre-Cana) is required for all couples.
