Jesus said . . .
“Have you not read that He who made them from the beginning made
them male and female [Genesis 1:27], and said, ‘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.”
The Gospel of St. Matthew 19:3–7
With these words Our Lord Jesus Christ elevated the natural union of man and woman to the
status of a Sacrament, that is, ‘an external sign of the internal reality of God’s grace within us’.
The Holy Sacrament of Matrimony is therefore a sacred bond and vow that reflects the intimate
communion of God in Christ Jesus with His bride, The Church [Ephesians 5:32]. In fact, the
Sacrament of Matrimony is a sign for all people on earth to recognize the Christian calling to the
wedding banquet of the Lamb of God in heaven [Matthew 22:2; Revelation 19:9]! “By this all men will
know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another [John 13:35].”
If either you or your future spouse are Catholic, we recommend that you plan a Sacramental
Marriage in order that your marriage may not only be recognized as valid in the Catholic Church,
but also be truly blessed by God and ‘grace-filled’. The Church’s combination of parish and
diocesan programs will assist you in your preparation for a future family life together, and enable
you to receive this beautiful Sacrament in a most receptive fashion.
Please take a look at this diocesan link for requirements and schedules.
If you would like to celebrate your wedding at Queen of Angels, please get started right away by
emailing our Pastor
The entire Marriage Preparation takes at least six months to complete
