Marriage

Marriage CertThe Sacrament of Marriage

Marriage is a sacred sacrament in the Catholic church.  The loving communion that exists between a husband and his wife reveals to us the kind of love which Christ has for us: free, faithful, fruitful and forever.

Preparing for Marriage

You will be required to complete a marriage preparation course and further details of organisations that run these courses will be provided to you.

Arranging a Marriage

Our church is available for weddings only on Saturdays between 11:00am and 3:00pm.  To arrange a marriage at St Christopher's, a minimum of six months' notice prior to your intended marriage date is required.

Please contact the parish office for initial inquiries of available dates – including arranging the initial meeting with our parish priest.  From there you will be guided by our priest as to what has to happen prior to your marriage taking place.
