We offer our congratulations to all anticipating marriage, particularly to the parishioners of St. John Paul II Mission. People can have a wedding and a nice party for the couple, but it takes work by both parties to have a marriage. Marriage is a very important Sacrament in the Church and as such there are requirements necessary for having a marriage in the Church. It is important to remember that marriage is a covenant made by two people with God, a very sacred time in the life of the parties. Obviously this is not something to be taken lightly. With that, the Archdiocese requires six (6) months of preparation for couple anticipating marriage and the parties are to be married in a “sacred place”.
Please contact the parish office at least 6 months prior to the date of the wedding. (770) 532-6772 or firstname.lastname@example.org
