The Sacrament of Matrimony

“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 #1601

Celebrating the Sacrament of Matrimony at St. Mary:
Please contact one of the parish priests at least six months in advance. Engaged couples are expected to be registered at a parish and attending Sunday Mass regularly. Pre-Marital preparation is required and done with the parish priest, in conjunction with programs such as Pre-Cana, Cana II, Engaged Encounter, etc. The priest preparing you will discuss the details of preparation. Wedding dates will only be added to the parish calendar by a priest, after meeting with an engaged couple.
