Marriage is a blessed sacrament in the Church and a hope-filled time of celebrating God's grace through the love you share for one another. Your wedding day will be a very special day for you, and we want to help you prepare for it as well as we can. We also want to help you prepare, not just for the special day, but for your entire married life together. Because marriage is a sacrament in the Catholic Church, it is not only a very special moment for the two of you, but it is also a sacred event for all of us.
We need at least six to nine months time to prepare for your Sacrament of Matrimony. One of you, or your parents, must be registered members of St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church. If you are newcomers to the parish, you are expected to be registered to become active members of the parish for at least six months before the scheduled wedding. We also encourage you to introduce yourself to the clergy and discuss your plans for marriage.
