“It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but marriage that sustains your love.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison.
The Church has a rich tradition in its teaching on sacramental marriage and covenantal union. The Old Testament authors speak of God making a covenant with the chosen people and promising them that they will never be forsaken. The New Testament authors tell of Jesus as the new covenant and compare the relationship of Jesus with the Church to the relationship of a husband and wife.
Getting Married at Our Lady’s
If you are planning to get married - congratulations! This is a great time in your life and as a parish we would like to celebrate this new beginning with you.
There is a one day marriage preparation course. There will be a few meetings with the priest to get to know you better and plan the wedding. You may have a Nuptial Mass or a Wedding Service. Contact the Parish Office to make an appointment to discuss dates and other arrangements, or speak to Father Stephen after Sunday Mass.
