Matrimony

Matrimony

"The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of like, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament."

Weddings are celebrated throughout the year.  In order to ensure proper sacramental preparation, engaged couples must arrange for their wedding with the priest at least six (6) months in advance of their anticipated marriage date. Parish membership and attendance at an Engaged Encounter weekend are required. Please contact the parish office by phone [(256) 734-3730] for an appointment to begin the process of marriage preparation. Weddings are normally not celebrated during Lent.
