Marriage is a calling from God (vocation) and a sacrament. It requires the presence of a priest or deacon, a bride and a groom, and two witnesses. In this Sacrament, the bride and groom are the real ministers because it is their mutual “I do” that makes them husband and wife.
The Sacrament of Marriage 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. The celebration of marriage is also a liturgical act, appropriately held in a public liturgy at church. Catholics are urged to celebrate their marriage within the Eucharistic Liturgy. ~from the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults.
Our church facility is reserved for those who are registered members of our parish, or children or grandchildren of registered parish families. To make arrangements for the sacrament of Marriage, please contact the parish office.
