Marriage

Welcome

Welcome to our Parishes, and congratulations on your upcoming Nuptials.

The Sacrament of Marriage can be celebrated in any of our five Churches and we invite you to explore our most popular ones below.

 

Sacrament of Marriage

The sacrament of Christian marriage involves the entire life of spouses as they journey together through the ups and downs of marriage and become more able to give to and receive from each other.  Their life becomes sacramental to the extent that the couple cooperates with God’s action in their life.

Catholic teaching holds that the grace of this sacrament brings to the spouses the particular help they need to be faithful and to be good parents.  It also helps a couple to serve others beyond their immediate family and to show the community that a loving and lasting marriage is both desirable and possible.

A list of frequently asked questions has been compiled for couples wishing to marry in a Catholic church.  View FAQ’s…
