The Sacrament of Matrimony
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.
This program is for all couples planning to be married at Mary Queen of Peace. Our intent is to teach and review obligations of married life and prepare new couples for marriage. Contact the parish office for more information.
Mary Queen of Peace currently utilizes the Life Innovations’ Prepare/Enrich program , along with mentor couples, to prepare engaged couples for the Sacrament of Marriage. An Archdiocesan weekend retreat, “Living God’s Love” is also required. Please allow a minimum of six months for marriage preparation. Arrangements must be made with the pastor.
