Wedding Guidelines - Updated December 2009
Weddings at St. Michael Catholic Church
We are happy to have you consider St. Michael for your wedding ceremony. We have comprised the following information to assist you with your plans.
In planning your wedding, you must remember that the Wedding Liturgy is a worship service that gives glory and praise to God. Therefore, your ceremony must be conducted in a way that enables all participants to actively participate in the Nuptial Liturgy.
The priest/deacon whom you ask to preside at your wedding is the appropriate person to resolve any questions regarding what is proper for Catholic worship. Diocesan regulations require that you contact the parish priest or deacon four months prior to setting a wedding date. Your wedding date cannot be set until the priest/deacon is consulted. Marriage is a sacrament of the Church similar to Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist. It is a significant event in your spiritual life and it is important that your parish priest be informed of your plans.
