What we believe about marriage

Congratulations on your decision to get married! This is a very special time for you both as you prepare to commit to one another in the Sacrament of Matrimony.

We believe that when a man and a woman get married in the Catholic Church, they pledge to live as one, in a permanent, exclusive and mutual love relationship. They form a new community that shows forth the love, equality and hope of true followers of Jesus. A Catholic marriage ceremony must be witnessed by a priest or a deacon.
