Matrimony

"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." The Catechism of the Catholic Church 1601
 
Getting Married - For Christians, Marriage is a Sacrament that is best celebrated in the home church of the bride or the groom. For weddings at our Church, a six-month minimum period of preparation is required. This preparation includes a Pre-Cana class or retreat, the Prepare and Enrich Marriage Preparation instrument, and liturgical planning. Those who are not parishioners of St. Peter Parish may celebrate their weddings in the Church; however, those are exceptional cases and must be discussed with Fr. Craig Hovanec.
