For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and reflects the union of Jesus Christ and His Church.
In our parish, couples should contact the Parish Office about their wedding to make the initial arrangements. They are then invited to meet with a priest who explains what documents are required and outlines what preparation is necessary. Normally a minimum of six months notice is required.
