SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE
Matrimony joins two people in marriage for a lifetime of dedication to each other’s well-being and the well-being of their children and the community.
• Jesus called spouses to unconditional love and lasting fidelity.
• We honor and expect unconditional love and lasting fidelity between spouses.
• We believe in and help others to find happiness in marital love and fidelity.
The church very much wants to be involved in planning for weddings. Also the church has expectations for the couple as they begin to plan a wedding. Contact should be made with the pastor 6 – 8 months before the wedding date.
Until the completion of our new church building we have relied on the generosity of nearby parishes for weddings. St Mary Magdalene now has some provisional guidelines for wedding preparation. Click here to see those Guidelines.
