Marriage

Marriage joining hands

A marriage is a Sacrament of the Church.  Therefore, all arrangements for the ceremony should be appropriate for the solemnity of this occasion. As a sacrament, the marriage is not an expression of the love of two individuals, but rather an outward sign of the Church's hope that two may become one as a sign of God's Kingdom in this world.  

A couple desiring to be married is expected to contact the priest/deacon at least six (6) months prior to the proposed date of their wedding.  

Meeting with the priest/deacon deals with basic family and faith history information.  Dates are confirmed.

Usually the marriage is contracted in the church parish of the bride or groom.

Rehearsal, music, attendants, altar servers, lectors are arranged.  

Guidelines are set for floral and other decorations in the church.
