Sacraments

Marriage is a lifelong union between a man and a woman.  As a sacrament, it reflects the union of Jesus Christ and His Church. The Sacrament of Marriage is also known as the Sacrament of Matrimony.  Marriage is more than a natural institution; it was elevated by Christ Himself, in His participation in the wedding at Cana (John 2:1-11), to be one of the seven sacraments.  Sacramental marriage is more than a union of a man and a woman; it is a type and symbol of the divine union between Christ, His Church, the Groom, and the Bride.  

 

As married Christians, open to the creation of new life and committed to our mutual salvation, we participate not only in God's creative act but in the redemptive act of Christ.  When two Christians receive the Sacrament of Matrimony, God is with them, witnessing and blessing their marriage covenant.

 

We have two beautiful worship spaces for weddings.  Our most popular is our old church that was dedicated in 1910.  Its beauty and intimacy reflect the heritage of our community and faith.  Our new church, dedicated in 1997, is a modern design that also reflects our heritage and history as a parish.  To read about the history of our church please click here.
