Weddings & Civil Marriages

The Sacrament of Marriage is a covenant, which is more than a contract. Covenant always expresses a relationship between persons. The marriage covenant refers to the relationship between the husband and wife, a permanent union of persons capable of knowing and loving each other and God. The celebration of marriage is also a liturgical act, appropriately held in a public liturgy at church. Catholics are urged to celebrate their marriage within the Eucharistic Liturgy.

Weddings

St. Peter Roman Catholic Church congratulates you on desiring to become ONE through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.  This is an important milestone both in your personal lives as well as the life of our parish. We are eager to assist you to make your joyous day most memorable.  We request that you contact our Parish Office – 369-3816 – to discuss dates and availability of the church at least six (6) months prior to your intended wedding date. 


Civil Marriages

Having your Civil Marriage Convalidated

Our parish staff is most willing to assist our parishioners who are currently in a non-sacramental marriage.  Please contact one of the parish priests or deacons to discuss what is needed in order to have your civil marriage convalidated.

Reception of Holy Communion at Weddings

We often gather as a faith community to express our joy at weddings of loved ones. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is often where many of us will gather with family for these most profound moments in our lives. Many times members joining us for these events may not be Catholic or may have fallen away from their faith and are not able to receive Holy Communion. At all weddings a brief announcement will be made to remind all faithful present about the proper disposition that must be possessed to receive Our Lord in the Eucharist. These guidelines are prescribed by the USCCB - United States Conference of Catholic Bishops - and are found inside of the back cover of the Missalette.

Below is the announcement that will be made at these Masses:

As we prepare to receive our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, we remind all present that as Roman Catholics we believe that Christ is truly present in the Holy Eucharist; therefore, one must be worthily prepared to receive Him. If you are not Catholic or for Catholics who are not properly disposed to receive Holy Communion, we would ask that you refrain from the reception of Holy Communion. You may come forward in the communion line for a blessing, please indicate such by placing your hand on your chest or your index finger over your lips. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
