Holy Matrimony

“From the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.

Mark 10:6-9

 

Congratulations on your engagement!

The Bible describes God’s plan for marriage as a grace for a happy life and a sign of Christ’s faithful and fruitful love for his Bride, the Church. We at Our Lady of Mercy are excited for you to grow in this love and understanding.

This is one of the most exciting (and hectic) seasons in your life. Let us help you get ready for more than just the wedding day!
