Committing to Marriage
FACING UP TO THE COMMITMENT OF CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE:
It is of the greatest importance to prepare yourselves spiritually for marriage in a thoughtful and sincere manner. Such a serious commitment deserves your best effort.
You are required to comply with all the regulations concerning marriage in the diocese where you reside before we can accept your request to marry here.
We strongly advise that you participate in the pre-marriage programme of the diocese and that you make an adequate spiritual preparation for the lifelong union that you are about to enter.
It is important to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) before your marriage. If you have not done so before your departure for
Rome, you may do so when you visit us to make the final arrangements for your wedding.
The whole process of preparation for marriage and the wedding ceremony is a special moment of grace in your life. We ask that you show the greatest possible degree of good will and cooperation.
