According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.” (1601)
Arrangements for a wedding are to be made with the parish at least 6 months in advance.
Cost: There is no charge for parishioners to be married at St. Ambrose or St. Patrick. The same is true of immediate family of parishioners (children, grandchildren). However, a donation of $150 each to the church and to the priest are welcome and appreciated. Non-parishioners will pay a fee of $1,000. To qualify as a parishioner, one must be attending and contributing to the parish for at least one year.
Please select the parish where you wish to be married below.
