“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” (Code of Canon Law, c. 1055, §1).

Because Christian marriage is a sacrament, the Catholic Church wants couples to be well-prepared. So it is mandatory for all couples entering into the Sacrament of marriage to complete the Marriage preparation course. Please refer to the notice board for more details.

Couples planning to marry should contact the Parish Office at least SIX MONTHS before their anticipated wedding date to begin the marriage preparation process.
