MARRIAGE

” … Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female’ and said. ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh . Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.” -Matthew 19:4-6.

“The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a 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.” -Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1601.

PREPARE FOR YOUR MARRAIGE AT ST. THOMAS AQUINAS

Generally, a four month preparation period is required before a wedding may take place.  Our excellent pre-Cana program consists of the engaged couple meeting one-on-one for seven sessions with a sponsor couple to discuss different aspects of Christian marriage. To start the preparation process, please fill out our online form or contact the parish office to set up an appointment to begin preparing and to set a date for the sacrament of Holy Matrimony.  (505) 892-1511
