“God who created humans out of love also calls them to love – the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being…” (CCC 1604)
“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.” (CCC 1601).
Scheduling Your Wedding
We welcome inquiries from all those desiring to be married in the Catholic Church and we want this to be a very special time in a couple’s faith life.
We recommend couples schedule their wedding as soon as they have a time frame for their wedding date. The Archdiocese of Louisville requires couples to notify the Parish office at least six months prior to the proposed date of their wedding and schedule a meeting with the pastor. This interval allows time to prepare for such a sacred commitment. In rare circumstances are exceptions made. Ordinarily, either the bride or the groom (or their parents) is a registered member or have a close affiliation to our church. We welcome the opportunity for couples to join our parish, if they are not already members.
At their first meeting with the pastor, couples will put together a timeline that will include such things as: scheduling a date for taking the FOCCUS © Pre-Marriage Inventory; scheduling a marriage preparation program; scheduling a time to meet with our Director of Worship and Music; and scheduling other events that may be pertinent to their personal situation. Couples will also receive a packet of information to further assist in their wedding preparations. Please contact the Parish Office at 426-1588 and they will assist you in setting an appointment with the pastor.
