Congratulations on your engagement and your upcoming wedding.

In Christian marriage, a man and woman pledge to live as one in a permanent, exclusive and mutual love relationship. They form a new community (sometimes called a 'domestic' Church) that shows forth the love, equality, and hope of true followers of Jesus. This is an ongoing and visible symbol to all people of:

  • God's continuing creative activity;
  • God's unconditional love for God's people; and
  • Jesus Christ's undying love relationship with the Church.

A Catholic marriage ceremony may be either a nuptial Mass or a wedding ceremony, and it must be witnessed by a priest or a deacon.
