Marriage

The cultural reality of marriage and its celebration is rapidly changing in society. But for baptised Catholics marriage is one of the seven sacraments in which the Spirit of the Risen Lord is powerfully present.

 

A valid Catholic marriage in the eyes of the Church involves being married before a priest in a Catholic Church or Chapel. Deviation from this norm requires special permission.

Any Catholic is very welcome to use OLA Church for their marriage celebration. If you would like Fr Peter to be the celebrant please make contact with him to make a booking. Six months’ notice or longer would be appreciated. The church is available free of charge to any parishioner who contributes financially to the upkeep of the parish. Otherwise a fee of $200 is charged for the hire and use of the Church. Offering a separate stole fee (donation) to the priest celebrant is also normal Catholic practice.
