“Father, you created us in love to share your divine life. We see this high destiny in the love of husband and wife, which bears the imprint of your divine life.

Love is our origin, love is our constant calling, and love is our fulfillment in heaven.

The love of man and woman is made holy in the sacrament of marriage, and becomes the mirror of your own divine love.” (The Rite of Marriage)

We are blessed to share the journey to your wedding day with you! As we prepare for that day, our goals are two-fold: To enable you to deepen your relationship with each other and with God; and to assure a wedding liturgy that is both meaningful and prayerful. Planning such an event involves many details. THIS BOOKLET is intended to answer some basic questions regarding weddings and preparing for marriage here at Saint Mary Parish.
