Marriage

So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.

Matthew19:6

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit.

Luke 10:1

We congratulate you for wanting to take this step, the most important step of your lives, to get married. We are here to welcome you and help you prepare for a holy, life-long marriage, a following of Jesus, and a being sent by him to minister to others as a pair. The first thing to do is to call and make an appointment with Fr. Chris Troxell. At that first appointment, Fr. Chris will explain the requirements for marriage here at OLA. One of the requirements is an interview, which begins the marriage preparation process. The interview can take place at the first appointment, or you may wait and make a second appointment. If the interview reveals that everything is in order (and it almost always does), a date may be set. You may request any priest or deacon, here at OLA or from outside the parish, to preside at your wedding. A donation of $650, $200 of which is given as a deposit when the date is reserved, is requested for the marriage preparation process and wedding, and includes the services of a wedding coordinator.

Contact Fr. Chris Troxell at the parish office at (909) 626-3596, ext. 272, to make an appointment for for more information.
