Holy Orders confers on those called by the Church the sacred power to serve and build up the body of Christ in teaching, divine worship and pastoral guidance. Holy Orders is the sacrament of vocation that prepares men for the priesthood or diaconate. Call Father Tim or one of the Deacons for further information.
Marriage celebrates and witnesses the covenant of love between a man and woman and symbolizes that union of Christ and His Church. Marriage requires a six-month preparation period. Couples take "Prepare", a marriage inventory and discuss the results with the Marriage Peparation Team. Couples are also required to attend a Parish PreCana Day or a Diocesan sponsored Engaged Encounter.
