The Sacrament of Marriage

The sacred dignity of Marriage is considered a new state of life; and as such, preparations for this lifestyle is essential in order to assist the bride and groom to live out their rights and duties with spiritual maturity. The Church is entrusted to provide this pastoral care to those who are engaged to be wed. Should you wish to marry in the Catholic Church, arrangements should be made at least six months prior to the wedding date. Pre-marriage counseling is provided by the Pastor.  Please call the church office for more information.

"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."
