The Sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved His Church. The grace of the Sacrament perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.
[Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994 Reference: 1661]
To celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony at Immaculate Conception Parish one of the partners must be a registered member of the Church and the couple must contact the Church office at least six months prior to the wedding date for proper assistance.
For registered couples who have been civilly married but have yet to celebrate the sacrament of marriage in the Church, a Validation may be performed by either a deacon or priest. Please call the Parish Office for more details.
