Marriage

The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, 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.              CCC#1601

 Arrangements for weddings must be made at least six months in advance of the wedding and prior to setting a firm date.  This will allow sufficient time for the couple to complete the required FOCCUS survey, to attend the pre-marriage programs and to prepare a proper celebration of the sacrament.
