Celebrating your marriage at Sacred Heart

 "But from the beginning of creation, 'God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate."  Mark 10:6-9

As you plan your wedding, and embark on this busy and joyous time, we encourage you, in the midst of the many details and the inevitable stress, to consider the sacramental gift of marriage. Marriage is a lasting commitment that you make to each other freely. The gift of your whole self to another calls for fidelity, a life-long commitment, and enables you to share in God’s acts of creation. This is why the Church calls marriage a covenant. In this covenant, each of you give yourself completely to one another. A married couple is a sign of God’s love for us, a sacrament of this total love. How well you live this call to be sacrament is a loving challenge to both of you. As you consider the meaning of the sacrament of marriage, please remember these words from Paul:

“Love is patient, love is kind. Sacred Heart Parish | Matrimony
It does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Preparing for a wedding in the Catholic Church is a challenging process. A wedding ceremony expresses your desire and commitment to become this sacrament. You express this in the choices you make about what happens during your wedding. At Sacred Heart, our goal is to guide you through the process in a way that will help you appreciate the important step you are about to take, and to provide beautiful memories for a lifetime. The entire staff at Sacred Heart Church looks forward to working with you both as you prepare for this important step in your life.
