Congratulations on your engagement! Our parish staff and our engaged couples ministry team stand ready to guide you as you prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage in the Catholic Church. Couples seeking to be married at the Church of St. Patrick should call the Parish Office no less than six months in advance to obtain a copy of our wedding brochure. This brochure will answer many of your questions about planning a wedding at St. Pat's.
