Matrimony – Matrimonio

But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder (Mark 10:6-9).

Saturdays

Please arrange an appointment with the Pastor or Parochial Vicar at least six to eight months before the date you wish to marry. They will guide, advise and counsel you throughout your marriage preparation. The six month period is the normal time it takes to prepare couples for the sacrament of matrimony without complications due to prior marriages, etc.  Please see the Atlanta Ardiocese website www.archatl.com  “Office of Formation and Discipleship-Marriage Prep” for more Marriage Preparation information.
