A wedding is a day; a marriage is a lifetime
For Catholics, marriage is not only a personal covenant; it is also a sacrament in which God is present in a special way in the lives of the two persons joined with Christ in a union of love. The community of Holy Family extends a cordial welcome to you who are planning to consecrate your love for one another in the sacrament of matrimony. It is our privilege to help you prepare for this special time of joy and spiritual enrichment
Marriage Preparation Guidelines
To begin the marriage preparation process, call the Pastoral Center at (626) 799-8908 at least six months before the desired date of marriage, and make an appointment to meet with one of the priests.
Weddings at Holy Family normally take place on Saturdays at 12:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Information meetings, called Cana Gatherings, are held regularly. The wedding coordinator will let you know the date, time, and place of the meeting. At this gathering, you will receive an information packet covering details of how to proceed with making wedding arrangements. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss matters of special interest. You will also complete a questionnaire and learn about “FOCUS,” an exercise in communication. A wedding date may not be set until the couple has met with the priest, attended the “Cana Gathering” and submitted the required documents including the wedding fees.
A. Church Fees
$2,000 Holy Family Church fee
$150.00 nonrefundable marriage preparation fee due at the Cana Gathering. Balance is due when the wedding date is confirmed.
B. Altar Servers
$30 for two servers at $15.00 each. Due one month before the wedding.
Should you have any questions or need assistance, please discuss these matters with the wedding coordinator.
