Congratulations on your engagement! Begin your new life together by getting married in the Catholic Church, which by canon law all baptized Catholics are required to do, following a solid preparation for marriage. For marriage preparation in English, please contact Ann Brophy at the parish office at least six months before your desired wedding date.
Bring Your Marriage into the Church:
Did you know that canon law requires all baptized Catholics to marry in the Catholic Church, unless given official permission to do otherwise? It’s important. If you married outside of the Church, we encourage you to celebrate your marriage in the Church (called convalidation). It’s not difficult to do or a lengthy process, and it brings your marriage into good standing with the Church. Convalidations are usually celebrated very simply on a weekday afternoon. To learn more, please contact Ann Brophy at the parish office.
