MARRIAGE

“A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh, so they are no longer two but one flesh."

- Mark 10:7-8

Congratulations!  Come see Father Scott as soon as you can after getting engaged. The Archdiocese requires a minimum eight-month preparation period before the wedding. The marriage prep process is designed not just for a beautiful wedding day, but to build the type of marriage that will last till death do us part.

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 sacrament of marriage is one that brings great blessings to the couple, to their family and friends, and the Church as a whole. Risen Christ Catholic Parish strives to prepare couples for not only their wedding day, but for a lifetime of grace filled blessings in the relationship that will help lead them to eternal salvation.

MARRIAGE AT RISEN CHRIST

Couples wanting to get married at Risen Christ should contact us at least 8 months prior to their wedding to discuss marriage preparation. An initial meeting will be scheduled to discuss the marriage preparation process in more detail.

Please contact Mary Ellen Weilend at (303) 758-8826 or maryellen@risenchristchurch.org for more information.

THE MARRIAGE CEREMONY

A Nuptial Mass is the usual form for the celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony between two Catholics.

A marriage between a Catholic and a baptized Christian is usually celebrated outside of Mass.

A marriage between a Catholic and an unbaptized person is always celebrated outside of Mass.
