Sacrament of Marriage

Holy Matrimony – 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 (Catechism #1601).

If you are recently engaged, congratulations! 

Couples planning to be married in our parish must contact our pastor at

least six months in advance. 

It is strongly urged that this be done prior to making any other

arrangements (the reception venue, etc.). 

Every couple is required to participate in a

Diocesan marriage preparation program

(PreCana or Engaged Encounter Weekend)

which serves as an enhancement of their preparation to receive the Sacrament.  

For further questions or to make an appointment to meet with Fr. Reichlen,
