Marriage – A Sign of Faithful Love 

This sacrament is the sacred covenant forged between a man and a woman which establishes a permanent partnership for their whole lives.  The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a mutual bffimieoacja4dvxzjw221gtizl.jpgsurrendering of oneself totally to another and a public statement about God:  the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God’s values. 

“They are no longer two, therefore, but one body.”  (Matt. 19:6)

Pre-Cana (Engaged Couples)

Designed to inform the engaged couple of the theology and practice of marriage, Pre-Cana sessions are held around the Diocese on a rotating basis.  Two sessions each year are hosted at Christ the King by a team of couples who are responsible for making presentations.
