For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.
Couples wishing to get married must contact one of the priests at least six months prior to the desired date of the wedding. Marriage preparation classes are held in the parish or couples may attend a marriage preparation retreat weekend through the Diocese of Birmingham. Contact the church office for class dates and details.
