1. Approval from the Pastor:  If you are not members of the parish, then you will need to get the pastor’s approval for the wedding to take place there.

3. Wedding Planning: You will need to meet with the parish priest, to plan the wedding.

Please note, at least one person of the couple in question must be a Catholic in order to contract a marriage in the Catholic Church. If one or both parties has been married before, then a canonical process may be required to enable the marriage to be performed again in the House of God.

Any enquires should be directed to the Parish Priest
