Sacrament of Service
Marriage is one of two sacraments of service. The other is Holy Orders, ordination to the diaconate or priesthood. Marriage is a vocation, a Christian marriage is a “covenant relationship between a man, woman and God”. God himself is the author of marriage.
Active parish membership is expected before a wedding date may be set.
Allow additional 6 months in advance of wedding date to fulfill the preparation program recommended by the Diocese.
