Marriage Preparation & Weddings
When a man and woman make a commitment to marry each other in the Catholic Church that decision is joyful and very serious and sacred. Through the Sacrament of Matrimony, Jesus calls the couple to draw closer to each other, to God and to God’s people, the Church.
Because marriage is a permanent commitment to a partnership of life, it requires careful thought, much prayer, and intense preparation.
As a parish, we are pleased to journey with you during this special time.
