"By its very nature the institution of marriage and married love is ordered to the procreation and education of the offspring and it is in them that it finds its crowning glory." Catechism of the Catholic Church 1651 

 

The Catholic Church teaches that marriage is sacred and a gift from God. He created man and woman in His image so that they may become one body. This union between a man and woman is blessed by God and is a symbol of God’s love on earth. This vision of marriage is taken from Scripture.

 

Marriage is a very important Sacrament and as such there are requirements necessary for having a marriage in the Church. We require six (6) months of preparation time. Please click here to contact the Secretary for Religious Education for more information.
