Wedding Preparations
If you are planning a Wedding, we would like to advise you of the procedures involved:
 Contact the Parish office to advise of your intention to marry, to make sure the Church is available for your preferred date. Naturally, the earlier you do this the better.
At that time, we will advise on the next steps.
 For couples who are getting married you need to meet the priest of the parish you are residing in for the past six months, to complete all the necessary paperwork (Pre-Nuptial Enquiry Form) which is the responsibility of the Bride and Groom.

Please note that this must be done at least three months before the wedding.
Contact our Parish office for more information
