What is Marriage?

Marriage is a sacred covenant of life and love established between a man and a woman. This sacrament is a sacrament in service of communion and is ordered by God to the well-being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children. It is directed toward the salvation of others. Through an exchange of consent, a man and woman commit themselves to love each other until death.

To the Bride and Groom-to-be:

Congratulations! We welcome you to our church and pray that your planned marriage may be happy and holy. We offer a marriage preparation and instruction program which draws upon 20 centuries of faithful adherence to tradition, Sacred Scripture, and practical experience.
