I want to be close to God
Marriage & Weddings
Purpose of Marriage Preparation
When a man and woman make a commitment to marry each other in the Catholic Church that decision is not only joyful but very serious and sacred. Through the Sacrament of Matrimony, Jesus calls the couple to draw closer to each other, to God and to God’s people, the Church. Because marriage is a permanent commitment to a partnership of life, it requires careful thought, much prayer, and intense preparation. As a parish, we are pleased to journey with you during this special time.
Parishioners of Padre Serra Parish
(those who are already registered and attending for a mimimum of one year or adult siblings, children, or grandchildren of Padre Serra parishioners )
The first step in the process is to read Sacrament of Marriage Requirements of Padre Serra Parish and then, contact Teresa Runyon in our parish office for more information or to make an appointment with a deacon or priest, 482-6417 x322, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those couples who are parishioners in another parish are welcome to celebrate their wedding at Padre Serra Parish. In order to do so, couples must complete the sacrament preparation in their home parish and, if they live in the greater Los Angeles area, bring a priest or deacon to celebrate the wedding liturgy.
