Matrimony

Under Construction

 

Please note the following in the interim :

Marriages outside Ireland.
Instruction from the Bishop, Most Rev. Michael Smith
" Wedding arrangements must only be made when the couple meet with their priest and commence the pre-nuptial inquiry process...." This is part of further directives to be followed by priests in the diocese and issued by Bishop Michael Smith recently. Further details on the matter from your priest.

Instruction from Bishop Michael Smith:

Couples Preparing for Marriage

All couples
wishing to get married must book the church and contact the local priest well in advance of making preparations for their wedding day.


All couples must complete the Pre-Nuptial inquiry forms in
their local parish at least six months before they wish to get married.

It is particularly important that couples planning to get married abroad must contact the local priest before making any arrangements with the travel agent or wedding co-ordinator. This should help to ensure that no serious difficulties arise before major commitments have been made.
