MatrimonyGod Himself is the author of marriage …

The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.  (CCC 1661)

Prior to setting a date for marriage, the couple must consult with the pastor.  Please contact the parish office to set up an appointment.  Six months notice and marriage preparation classes are required in advance of all marriages.
