Marriage plans should be made at least one year before the wedding; couples should make NO other plans until they meet with a priest.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
This is the happiest of times for you, your families and your friends, and for your parish community as well. Marriage is a holy sacrament, and as such is a very important part of Christian life! Our efforts will center on assisting you to make this special time reverent, beautiful, and open to the movement of God’s Holy Spirit. Your celebration will be a gathering of your Christian community, and as such will be filled with prayer, music, song, and times of quiet, in which the voice of God can be heard.
Some important, practical information:
To begin your marriage preparation, we ask that you call the Parish Office (908-756-3383) at least a year before the planned time of your wedding. At that time, our secretary will register you for the sacrament, help you with some available dates, and assist you in any other way possible. One of the priests of the parish will be in contact with you to discuss the necessary paperwork and preparation and confirm the date of the ceremony. He will not only will prepare you spiritually for the proper reception of this joyous sacrament, but he will also “walk you” through the Wedding Liturgy, explaining your options and providing suggestions.
It is our privilege to serve you as you prepare for this joyous sacrament. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have throughout your time of wedding preparation.
