Sacrament of Marriage - Procedures for Marriage Arrangements

Couples planning to be married must contact the priest at least one year in advance. This is an Archdiocesan law and applies in all parishes. At least one party must be a registered member of the parish. If either party has previously gone through any form of civil or religious marriage with another person, the priest is not permitted to set a date for the wedding until the Archbishop’s office has been consulted. Once a date has been set with the church, then the other arrangements, such as the rental of a hall etc., can be made. In preparation for the marriage, the Catholic party should be attending Sunday Mass each week. The couple will also receive personal preparation for entering marriage through a Marriage preparation program. Finally, the couple should remember that they are preparing mainly for a marriage, not a wedding. A wedding lasts one day, but a marriage lasts forever!

THE HALL SHOULD NOT BE BOOKED, UNTIL THE COUPLE HAS RECEIVED A DATE FROM THE CHURCH FOR THEIR WEDDING
