The Sacrament of Marriage or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God’s values. Registered parishioners can call the office to inquire about the preparation required. Engaged couples should begin preparation at least six months before their desired marriage. Contact Fr. Arthur Mattox at the Parish Office to begin your preparation.
