Matrimony

“By the Sacrament of Matrimony, Christian spouses signify and participate in the mystery and unity and fruitful love between Christ and the Church; therefore, both in embracing conjugal life and in accepting and educating children, they help one another to become holy and have their own place and particular gift among the People of God.

“Through this Sacrament the Holy Spirit brings it about that, just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her, Christian spouses also strive to nurture and foster their union in equal dignity, mutual giving, and the undivided love that flows from the divine font of charity.”

  • From the “Introduction” in the Roman Catholic Church’s The Order of Celebrating Matrimony, nos. 8 and 9.

For information on celebrating the Sacrament of Matrimony with a Wedding at Saint Junipero Serra Parish, please download this PDF and follow the instructions in contacting the pastor.

The Diocese of Trenton requires that couples contact the parish no less than twelve months before planned weddings.

We strongly recommend that you set an appointment with the pastor to start the process before you commit to a particular date for a venue for your reception.
