Marriage

The celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony is a joyous occasion, as two people commit themselves to living a life of love together. The Church bears witness to their love and promises to support them in good times and in bad.

To properly prepare to be married here at OLV, you should contact the pastor at least 6 months in advance. It is crucial that make this contact first, before the reception is planned.

To be married here at OLV, the bride must be a registered member or living within our boundaries and willing to register. All engaged couples are expected to attend a marriage preparation program. If you are a bride from OLV and plan to be married at another Catholic parish, you must seek permission from our pastor first before approaching the other church (this is Canon Law, the law of our Church).
