Marriage is viewed by our Catholic Church as more than just a human event. The Catholic Church believes that the marriage between a man and a woman is a sacred event given deeper meaning by Christ, and is one of the seven sacraments.
Our parish wants to help and support couples in their preparation to receive the sacrament of marriage, and celebrate their wedding in the spirit that reflects their sharing in the sacred mystery of the unity and fruitful love they will share as husband and wife.
During this joyous time of preparation and celebration, our parish wants to provide you and your fiancé with the tools you will need to experience a holy and blessed ceremony, and a life dedicated to God through the vocation of marriage.
St. Mary Parish will do all it can to help those preparing for the sacrament of marriage. We wish to make this time of preparation helpful and formative.
To assist couples planning for marriage, it is necessary to know the procedures and guidelines, which exist in our parish and diocese.
