Marriage

"Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife and they become one flesh." (Genesis 2:24)

A wedding is a wonderful, exciting and often stressful time for any couple, young or old, embarking on this most sacred of life's journeys.

In the Catholic Church, marriage is a life-long commitment of love, fidelity and sacrifice that often stands in opposition to the usual world order. For this reason participation in marriage preparation classes is a requirement for all who wish to be married in the Catholic Church.

Marriage preparation is available through Engaged Encounter and through Catholic Family Services. Details will be provided to you when you meet with Fr. Antony.

If you are a registered parishioner of Christ the King and would like to be married here, we would ask that you contact Father Antony at least six months prior to your desired marriage date. In addition we would ask that you make no arrangements for your marriage (i.e. hall bookings, invitations etc) before speaking with Father.
