“Marriage is a precious sign, for “when a man and a woman celebrate the sacrament of marriage, God is, as it were, ‘mirrored’ in them; he impresses in them his own features and the indelible character of his love. Marriage is the icon of God’s love for us.”

- Amoris Laetitia #121




The Sacrament of Marriage is a sign to the whole church of the intimate and faithful love God has for each of us.  Your wedding day is but the beginning of a sacramental way of life for you.  It is truly a joyous occasion not only for you, your family, and your friends, but also for the whole Church.  We are delighted for you!

These guidelines will help you to prepare for this sacred event at St. Thomas Aquinas.  They should help you understand the documents that will be required during your marriage preparation process, the wedding liturgy, and other considerations such as church decorations on your wedding day. It is hoped that they will answer many of your questions and make your preparations a little smoother.
