Sacrament of Marriage


The Sacrament of Marriage (Holy Matrimony) is a public sign,

that gives oneself totally to the other person.

It is also a communal statement about God:

the loving union of husband and wife, speaks of family values,

and also God's values.


 Matrimony - United in Love, Strength for Service

A great two page brief from the USCCB


Registered parishioners, who have been worshipping with our Saturday/ Sunday community

for at minimum 3 months, are asked to notify the rectory

at least six (6) months prior to the planned wedding day.

A marriage preparation course is required for all couples.
