The Sacrament of Marriage or Holy Matrimony is a covenant, which is more than a contract. Covenant always expresses a relationship between persons. The marriage covenant refers to the relationship between the husband and wife, a permanent union of persons capable of knowing and loving each other and God. 

Wedding Masses are celebrated on Saturday, and may begin as early as 12:00 noon, but no later than 1:00 p.m. Engaged couples must be registered in this parish for a minimum of 6 months, attending Mass regularly, and participating in our envelope system before initiating the marriage preparation process, which requires approximately 6 months to complete. You must call the Parish Office at least six (6) months prior to your intended marriage to begin the marriage preparation program, and in advance of scheduling the wedding reception hall. Tentative wedding dates require meeting with a parish priest and his subsequent approval, before being confirmed/scheduled on the Church calendar.
