"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." (84 CCC 1601)
“The engaged couple…should be given catechesis not only about the Church’s teaching on Marriage and the family but also about the Sacrament and its rites, prayers, and readings, so that they may be able to celebrate it thoughtfully and fruitfully.” – Order of Celebrating Matrimony, no. 17
A couple who wishes to be married at Ss Peter & Lambert Parish must meet with a parish priest at least 9 months prior to the wedding date. Please do not make any other arrangements before meeting with one of the priests. There is a required sacramental preparation program.
