Holy Matrimony | Marriage
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. CCC 1601
The Archdiocese of Hartford requires that marriage preparation begin at least six months prior to the celebration of the sacrament. Please call the Priory to arrange an appointment with the Pastor to discuss your arrangements so that guidelines might be given to you in a timely manner.
