Marriage

Marriage is the sacrament by which Christ unites a Christian man and Christian woman as husband and wife.

Jesus said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife, and the two shall become one. Thus they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore, let no man separate what God has joined.” (Matthew 19:4-6)

Marriage is the sacrament by which Christ unites a Christian man and women in a life-long union, making them two in one flesh. In entering the marriage, the man and woman and God enter into a covenant whereby they pledge their mutual and total commitment to each other. Marriage is life lasting and indissoluble.

In accord with the regulations of the Bishop of Arlington, couples must contact a priest and begin preparation at least six months prior to the wedding.  Parish registration and active participation for a minimum of 3 months is required before preparation may begin. Please contact the parish secretary for more information!
