Getting Married at St. Patrick

Your Wedding
is just the start of an amazing life together

Planning your big day at St. Patrick Catholic Church can be simple with these great resources.

Getting Married Catholic

This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
(John 15:12-13)

Because the Catholic Church wants couples to form strong, lasting marriages,
couples are asked to:

PREPARATION PROGRAM

Attend an approved marriage preparation program. There are many different formats for marriage preparation programs ranging from intensive weekends, to a weekly series, to “in home” mentor couple programs. Catholic marriage preparation programs are usually presented by a team of lay married couples and a priest or deacon. They are not restricted to Catholics, but they are always in keeping with Church teaching.

PREPARE

Take at least six months to intensively prepare for your marriage. This goes beyond choosing a date and church, reserving a place for the reception, and picking out dresses. It means using this time to delve more deeply into your relationship and approach this momentous day with prayer and reflection.

MEET

Contact and meet with our parish priest as soon as you are engaged.
