The Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) teaches that marriage is a covenant in which husbands and wives join together in an intimate communion of life and love, a union that reflects the union of Christ and the church. Marriage is based on the maturity and mutual consent of the parties and on their willingness to give themselves to one another in unity and fidelity. Please call the Parish Office (371-7372 ext. 221) to schedule a wedding date. Most arrangements should be made at least six months before the wedding to accommodate a minimum of two appointments with the priest/ deacon and pre-cana.
