Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1601 "The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament."
For those interested in becoming married in our church, a notice of at least six months is required. Please call the church office at (215) 679-9275 to make an appointment.
Pre-Cana is a ministry to prepare couples to enter the Sacrament of Marriage. Our weekend program, given by married couples of our parish, helps engaged couples grow closer to each other and in their understanding of successful and sacramental marriage. We offer this program once a year, usually in the Spring.
Please pray for all couples participating and preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage!
