Christ performed his first miracle at a wedding feast in Canna, and the Church has always considered marriage to be a Sacrament which confers a special grace on the couple that allows them to live out their life together as a witness to God's love for us.
St. Catherine’s parish congratulates you on your upcoming marriage, and wishes you many blessings as you proceed in your preparation for this most significant moment in your lives. The preparation for any Sacrament is a very important moment in one's spiritual life.
Our parish community thanks God for your upcoming union in Christ Jesus, and the love that you have for one another is a clear sign of God's love for His People and His Church.
We pray that many blessings will flow from your life together, and we look forward to your active participation in the life of the Church.

The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives the spouses the grace to love each with the love which Christ had loved his Church; the of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissolubke unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life (cf. Council of Trent: DS 1799).
