Matrimony

Matrimony


For Catholics marriages are to be solemnised by God’s blessing. Civil marriages contracted by Catholics may be solemnised by the Church if the circumstances allow it.
“The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.”

CONTACT
If you are planning to be married in Our Lady and St. George’s Parish, please contact the Parish Priest as soon as you have a date in mind.

This must be done at least 6 months in advance of any proposed marriage as a course of marriage instruction for the couple is normally advised.
