Because marriage is both a vocation (a calling from God) and a sacrament, special gifts and graces are given to the couple entering Matrimony. Participants enter into the sacrament of Matrimony with the intention that their union will be permanent, faithful, and fruitful.

Congratulations on your decision to marry. It is a most important decision, one that will profoundly influence your whole future. God Himself is the author of your newly chosen vocation. We will help you throughout your preparation for your marriage. In keeping with Diocesan regulations there must be six months of preparations before the Marriage date.

Please Contact Msgr. James Tarantino, Pastor of St. Mark Catholic Church, six months in advance for pre-marital instructions.
