Here at Saint John and Saint Mary's, marriage is a significant sacrament.

  1.  The latest time for a wedding is 3 PM on Saturday. There are no Nuptial Masses on Sunday.

  2.  If there is a scheduling change for wedding time or date, it must be confirmed by the priest and wedding  couple to the Parish  Office.

  3.  The couple must attend a Marriage Preparation Program (Pre-Cana) approved by the Archdiocese. 

  4.  Each person MUST obtain a New copy of their Baptismal Certificate. Copies more than six months old are  not accepted.

  5.  A record of Communion and Confirmation is to be obtained.

  6.  Written parental consent is needed for anyone under 21.

  7.   If one is a non-Catholic, a clear understanding of the promises made by the Catholic party is to be had. The  non-Catholic party is to bring testimony that he/she has never been married. It is most important that you  inform the priest from the beginning if  there was a previous marriage for either the bride or groom even if  that marriage was a civil marriage.

  8.  If you move or change your phone number, you should inform us. If we can not get in touch with you for this  reason, we will  presume the wedding is canceled.

  9.   It is expected that you bring the marriage license to the rehearsal.

  10.   Marriages are expected to start within five minutes of the scheduled time. NO rice, bird seed or confetti, only   bubbles are allowed. Aisle runner (white carpets) are not used in either Church.

  11.  Altar flowers must be left in the Church as the decoration for the weekend. All other flowers and decorations  must be removed  at the end of the wedding.

  12. All fees must be paid when the Wedding Date is Reserved.
