The Sacrament of Marriage
A couple planning to be married at St. Gabriel’s should make arrangements with the Church at least one year in advance. A meeting with the priest is needed to discuss necessary preparations. Only the priest can confirm your wedding date. It is wise to check on available dates for the Church before making any firm commitments or other wedding arrangements.
The couple is required to meet periodically with the priest officiating at their wedding and attend a Pre-Cana session. The couple will also work with the parish music director in planning the ceremony. Any questions concerning the church’s rules or regulations on marriage should be directed to the parish priest so as to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding.
