Marriage is a partnership for life between a man and a woman in Christ. The special grace that is received by the couple is intended that they “help one another to attain holiness in their married life and in welcoming and educating children.”
If an couple wishes to get married at St Joseph Catholic Church, the requirements must be completed in this order:
- One person must be a registered and contributing member of the parish
- Schedule an appointment with the priest or deacon at least eight months before the intended wedding date
- Complete all paperwork plus schedule marriage preparation
- Set wedding date
- Meet all preparation requirements
- Plan the wedding liturgy
If a couple is already civilly married and wishes to have their marriage sacramentized, follow the requirements above.
