Marriage

Congratulations on your decision to get married!

The institution of marriage is a beautiful vocation, the beginning of family life and a great adventure.

The Catholic Church rejoices in your decision to marry and wants to journey with you in your preparations and assist you in growing in your love for each other as well as in your relationship with Christ. Each person is called to prepare as well as possible to live our faith in our marriage and in our lives.

Couples wishing to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony should plan to meet with Father Saga, six months prior to the wedding date, to help you as you begin this process. This time is needed for interviews, marriage preparation course and other preparations to be made. For more information about how to begin planning your wedding, please visit the parish or read Steps to Getting Married.

Catholic marriage preparation is mandatory for marrying in the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton, and it is strongly recommended that the marriage course be taken at least 6 months before the wedding date. Due to Covid -19 Pandemic, only an online Marriage Preparation course is available for Sacramental Formation.

For more information, contact Joshua, our Pastoral Assistant at 780-473-4259 ext. 2, or at stdominicsavio.sacraments@caedm.ca.
