The sacrament of matrimony brings a man and a woman together in marriage. By receiving matrimony, a couple enters into a sacred covenant. By their marriage, the couple witnesses Christ’s spousal love for the Church.
Because of the seriousness of the commitment of marriage and its sacramental nature, couples enter into a period of preparation that begins at least six months before the ceremony. Preparations include setting a date, meeting with the priest or deacon, working with a sponsor couple through the Marriage Preparation process, and attending an Engaged Encounter retreat. Contact Deacon Chuck Amsberry for more information and to fill out the application form.
