Marriage is the sacrament by which Christ Jesus joins a man and a woman in a life-giving and permanent union. In the Catholic faith, marriage is considered a sacrament-sign made sacred by Christ to show His presence in the world and to help all people reach a closer union with God.
This sacrament of marriage asks the couple to enter into a loving covenant with God and one another and to live faithfully as one forever.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church welcomes you to be married in our Parish. All arrangement for celebrating your wedding at our church can only be made directly with Priest and Deacons.
Please contact the Parish Office to make an appointment with one of our priests as early as possible & not less than 6 months prior to any intended wedding date.
Participating in an approved marriage preparation program is required by the Diocese and Parish.
Couples must be at least 18 years of age before marriage preparation can begin.
One of the parties must be a baptized Catholic or have made a Profession of faith if baptized previously in another Christian religion. A Catholic may marry a non-Catholic but the Catholic must make a commitment to share their Catholic Faith with their children.
Be free to marry. This means that if someone has been married previously, that person should see a priest or deacon concerning procedures for annulment. The Church looks at all intentions of marriage as permanent, so the one who was married before should begin the process to see if there was an impediment present that prevented him or her from fulfilling the duties of husband and wife.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
