Marriage

Priest officiating a wedding in church

“The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.” –Catechism of the Catholic Church

In Marriage, one gives oneself totally to the other person. Witnessed by the Church, it serves as a public statement of the loving union of a husband and wife, family values instituted by God.

Arrangements must be made at least six months to a year prior to the anticipated wedding date. Please contact the Parish office :
