Holy Matrimony
(Marriage)

Jesus lifted marriage to the level of a sacrament, revealing the love of God for us and Christ’s love for the Church. It is a sacred covenant and lifelong commitment between a man and woman.  

An engaged couples' preparation for the sacrament of matrimony should begin with an appointment with the pastor at least 6-8 months before the anticipated wedding date. Please contact us before setting your wedding date.
