Matrimony (Marriage)

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh? So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

- Matthew 19:5-7, American Standard Version (ASV)

Couples planning to be married must provide at least one year's notice and are required to take a Marriage Preparation Course. At least one of the parties should be a parishioner at St. Joseph's. Initial inquiries should be directed to the Parish Office during office hours.
