Christian Marriage

Making the decision to get married is a very special time for you as a couple and for your families and friends. There is much to plan and organise which can be challenging and sometimes stressful – you both want the day to be perfect. You have decided to get married in a Catholic Church – the Church too wants you day to be perfect. This is why you will be encouraged to concentrate on what is at the heart of any successful marriage – true love for one another.

In the Sacrament of Marriage, God’s love becomes present to the couple in their total union and flows through them to their family and community. By their permanent, faithful and exclusive giving to each other, symbolised in their physical union, the couple reveals God’s unconditional love. All seven sacraments bring grace to those that receive them, and is a way of describing how God shares the divine life with us, and gives us the help needed to lead a Christian life. In marriage this brings the particular help needed to be faithful to each other, to the marriage vows, and to undertake the privileges and responsibilities that marriage brings.

The Church wants to support and encourage you in this great undertaking and to help prepare you for it.
