The Sacrament of Matrimony, generally known as marriage, is the sacred union between one man and one woman. Through this sacrament, a man and a woman enter into a sacred covenant with one another in the presence of God. The Sacrament of Matrimony is the foundation of the family, the “domestic Church,” which is why the Catholic community so deeply cherishes marriage and family life. It is through this vocation, or calling, that God desires each spouse not only to grow in love for one another, but also to work with him as co-creators to bring new life into the world.
Marriage is a lifelong journey that often needs guidance in its different seasons. As a parish community, we want to offer support to those living out the vocation of marriage through courses, counselling, and mentorship.
If you are planning to get married in the Catholic Church, we would be very happy to set up an appointment with one of our priests to help get you started. Marriage preparation usually begins at least six months prior to the anticipated wedding date. Please contact the parish office and we will assist you.
