Marriage is a sacrament and, to that end, is considered holy and sacred. The couple planning to wed must be well prepared to receive this sacrament.
Whether the couple desires the celebration of the Holy Mass or not, God is the center of the wedding ceremony. Proper planning is required for all events surrounding this happy occasion. Just like the couple selects the rings, the cake and the flowers, care must be gvien in the selection of scripture readings and music.
God is the center of our faith and should also be the center of the marriage. Fr. Bean will gladly counsel each couple in the proper preparation for their happy day.
