Parish Policies for Wedding Ceremonies


Please be assured of our prayers and support for you during this special time for preparation for the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.

Diocesan Policies for Wedding Ceremonies

Sometimes the requirements for wedding ceremonies -- along with the many other aspects of planning your wedding -- can start to feel overwhelming. In an effort to help you plan your ceremony in concert with the beauty and fullness of Church teachings, we have created this Fifteen Point Checklist for Holy Weddings. Please use this as your guide when planning the specific aspects of your wedding ceremony.


St. Joseph Church Policies for Wedding Ceremonies

We understand the many facets of planning your wedding ceremony, and the importance of this special day for you and your family.

We have put together the following resources to help guide you in preparing for your wedding ceremony. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the parish office for clarifications or to set up a meeting with our Pastor.

Please note - if you choose to employ a Wedding Coordinator, they MUST meet with the liturgy director and the pastor to
ensure that everyone has the same information.

Required Documents

Please note, all necessary paperwork should be completed one month prior to the wedding if the marriage will take place at the our parish, and requests for documentation from our parish office should be made two months if the marriage will take in another parish.
