A covenant or partnership of life between a man and woman, which is ordered to the well-being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children. When validly contracted between two baptized people, marriage is a sacrament (Matrimony) (1601).
For Christians, Marriage is a Sacrament that is best celebrated in the home church of the bride or the groom. Six months of preparation is required. This preparation includes a Pre-Cana class or retreat, the Prepare and Enrich Marriage Preparation instrument, and liturgical planning. Call the parish priest of your choice to schedule a wedding date and time.
