Marriage

"That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body." Genesis 2:24

 

A sacrament is a visible sign of an invisible reality, Marriage is a sacrament and as such it is a sign to the world of the invisible God living in our midst, binding the lives of two people.

 

We would love to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage with you and your family.

 

Please contact the church office to make arrangements with priest or deacon at least 9 months prior to the wedding date. The Diocese of Davenport requires couples to complete the Marriage Preparation Weekend and the FOCUS premarital inventory.

Matrimony (why make it Catholic)
