The Sacrament of Marriage is the true joining of man and woman as one into the Body of Christ and His community. Engaged couples are more than welcome to celebrate this special day at St. Francis of Assisi Parish and are encouraged to seal this sacrament during the Holy Eucharist which prefigures the Wedding Feast in the eternal Kingdom.
Newly engaged couples as well as couples seeking a convalidation of their civil ceremony should contact the Parish office to schedule an appointment with the priest to begin preparation for the Sacrament of Marriage. Marriage Preparation should begin twelve months before the marriage date.
