Marriage is a “covenant or partnership of life between a man and woman, which is ordered to the well-being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children. When validly contracted between two baptized people, marriage is a sacrament” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1601).

In the Catholic Church, the spouses are the ministers of Christ’s grace and mutually confer upon each other the Sacrament of Matrimony by expressing their consent for one another in the presence of the Lord, His Church, and the world. The priest and the assembly witness the vow of Christ-like love.

St. Joseph parishioners have first priority in scheduling weddings and must contact our pastor at least six months before their wedding date.

St. Joseph provides marriage preparation for weddings scheduled at our church and for couples who are members here but plan to get married elsewhere.  Please contact Fr. Mike to begin the process.
