MARRIAGE

...........................................................................................................................

Marriage in the Catholic Church is a "covenant by which a man and a woman

establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life

and which is ordered by its nature to the good of the spouses

and the procreation and education of offspring.

[It] has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity

of a sacrament between the baptised. CIC can. 1055 #1

Practical points

  • To avoid disappointment, you should check the availability of the Church before you book your reception venue.

  • St Andrew Church is only available for the celebration of marriage according to the Rites of the Catholic Church, that is, with a Catholic Priest as Celebrant.

  • You will need to contact the Priests at least 6 months before you make any firm arrangements for your wedding. We will do everything we can to assist you.

 

Pastoral Preparation

This involves attendance at one of the Marriage Preparation Courses run by the Archdiocese, this is for all parties regardless of their different religious beliefs.

For more information, visit the Catholic Marriage and Fertility Services website.

 

Documents Required

  • If born in Australia a Birth Certificate, not an extract, must be produced.

  • If born outside Australia a valid Passport must be presented.

  • The Catholic party/parties are required to produce a copy of Baptismal Certificate (issued no longer then 6 months).

 

Catholic marriages are not celebrated outside sacred places (churches), unless there is a grave reason to do so. In this case, it is necessary to apply to the Archbishop for a dispensation to marry outside a sacred place.
