Dear Engaged Couple,

Welcome to Holy Trinity Catholic Church!  Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.  Please know that Holy Trinity is your spiritual family, you are home here.

We rejoice with you in your engagement!  Congratulations on your decision to consecrate your love before Our Lord and His Church in the sacrament of matrimony

St John Paul II referred to marriage in the following manner:

“Conjugal love involves a totality, in which all the elements of the person enter – appeal of the body and instinct, power of feeling and affectivity, aspiration of the spirit and of will.  It aims at a deeply personal unity, a unity that, beyond union in one flesh, leads to forming one heart and soul; it demands indissolubility and faithfulness in definitive mutual giving; and it is open to fertility.  In a word it is a question of the normal characteristics of all natural conjugal love, but with a new significance which not only purifies and strengthens them, but raises them to the extent of making them the expression of specifically Christian values”.

For couples who are civilly married to each other and who are seeking to have their marriage blessed in the Church, Holy Trinity is pleased to provide our Adoration Chapel in which the Convalidation Ceremony can take place.  Please contact the parish office to start the Convalidation process with one of our clergy members

The Wedding Guidelines Booklet will be emailed to you once you've started the marriage preparation process. When you review it, any of our clergy or staff member will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  We look forward to working with you in preparation for your marriage.
