Marriage
The Sacrament
of 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."
84

What should you do when you decide that you
want to marry in the Catholic Church?

 

Please contact the parish as soon as possible.
We will explain the process of marriage preparation
at our parish and make an appointment for you to talk
with the priest.

 

Why does the church require engaged couples to
participate in a marriage preparation program?

 

Marriage preparation offers couples the opportunity
to develop a better understanding of Christian marriage;
to evaluate and deepen their readiness to live married life;
and to gain insights into themselves as individuals
and as a couple. It is especially effective in helping couples
to deal with the challenges of the early years of marriage.
