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).
 
Married couples, in virtue of their Sacrament of Matrimony, express and share in the mystery of marital love that exists between Christ and the Church. 
 
Through your preparation and entering into this holy vocation as married persons you are a symbol of unconditional love and intimate communion between Jesus, and the Church.
To witness the love of a two people made holy in the Sacrament of Matrimony is to see concretely the love between Christ and His Church. 
 
Weddings should be arranged at least a year in advance. This allows plenty of time for the gathering of any paperwork that may be needed. It also leaves time for attending the required Pre-Cana program or God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage.  Call the rectory before you book your hall and arrange the wedding with one of the priests. For additional information call the parish office.
