Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage!
We at St. Olaf Parish welcome your wedding and will assist you in planning this important celebration of your faith. Deacon Bob Chittendon and I are committed to supporting you as you prepare for your marriage covenant. As a general rule, Deacon Bob assists interfaith couples and I assist couples who are both Catholic.
The enclosed guidelines are provided to answer frequently asked questions about preparing for your Catholic wedding.
At our first meeting, we will need to complete some forms required by the Church and also to complete a marriage inventory. At that time we will need a copy of your baptismal certificate and the date and place of your First Communion and Confirmation. This certificate cannot be more than six months old. Generally, if you have received First Communion and were confirmed, that information will be on the baptismal certificate. If one of you was baptized in a non-Catholic church, we will need a copy of the baptismal certificate from that church.
We look forward to working with you in preparing for your celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage in the Catholic Church.
Yours in Christ,
Rev Paul Hoffman
