As You Prepare to Celebrate Your
Wedding at Blessed Sacrament Parish
We at Blessed Sacrament Parish rejoice that you have decided to receive the Sacrament of Matrimony. This life-long commitment of love between man and woman is a sacred and beautiful bond. We are happy to be a part of your wedding and want to help make it a meaningful and memorable Christian celebration.
Your decision to be married in the Church is indeed an important one. In doing so you proclaim to the Christian community and to God your love for one another. Being married in a church is a public celebration. You ask for and are guaranteed the prayers and support of the Christian community. Through the publication of banns in our weekly bulletin, the parish will know of your upcoming wedding.
To be married in the Church implies you understand marriage is a sacrament, a gift of God’s love, blessing and presence. Because your marriage is a sacrament, you and the parish share the responsibility of sacramental preparation. That is why you participate in a Pre-Marriage Inventory (FOCCUS) and a Marriage Preparation Program (Pre-Cana) as well as scheduled meetings with the priest or deacon working with you. We are not going to tell you what your marriage will be like; we will help you prepare for receiving the Sacrament of Matrimony.
As you prepare for marriage we hope you grow even closer. For this reason we urge you to worship together, regularly, participating in Mass and praying together, asking God to bless you both and keep you free from worry, full of happiness and anticipation before your wedding.
We at Blessed Sacrament Parish want your wedding to be beautiful, memorable and meaningful. Don’t hesitate to talk to us about what we can do to make it so. As you rejoice in your love, so do we, and we hope you remember that God rejoices with you. May God bless you in your marriage.
