Sacrament of Marriage

The parish of St. Thomas the Apostle seeks not only to help couples celebrate their wedding, it also takes seriously the responsibility to help couples prepare for and celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage.

Couples preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage are required to:

  • Be registered members of the parish and active in the life of the community as they are able. If the parents are members of the parish, couples are expected to be active in their home faith community if they are able.
  • Call the parish at least six months in advance of the desired wedding date and request a Pre-Marriage Information Packet. This will include a checklist for the couple on all of the pre-marriage requirements.
  • Register for one of the following Pre-Marriage Workshops to be held at the parish center (dates to be announced). Couples must register for one of these workshops before any wedding date can be reserved.
