Marriage is a covenant relationship (I will love you unconditionally), and NOT just a contractual one (I will love you IF you love me).
The principal goal of marriage is not just pro-creation, it is also the mutual love of husband and wife. The Sacrament of Marriage has an important community dimension, couples by their love for each other, become living signs of how God loves us. Marriage assures a couple's ability to sustain an intimate relationship. Marriage assumes a relationship to Christ and His Church.
Documents that will be required:
*Baptismal Certificates that need to have been issued within 6 months of the proposed wedding date.
*Witness statements concerning the freedom to marry. These are provided by the Parish.
