THE PROCESS

1. Initial presentation with a priest to go over the importance of the sacrament of matrimony. ALL required documents must be brought in order to begin the marriage process.

2. One a priest approves the marriage, your marriage file will be opened and you can reserve your date with a $100.00 payment. 

3. On a scheduled Saturday, a deacon will interview 4 witnesses (2 for each future spouse). 

4. The couple must attend a pre-marriage class or retreat. 

5. If the couple is already legally married a copy of the marriage certificate is required. If not, they may receive the civil marriage at the same time as religious by obtaining a marriage license from the County Court one month before the ceremony. 

6. The week prior to the ceremony the couple will schedule their wedding rehearsal with the sacristan. 

7. Relax and enjoy your big day!
