Marriage

Coordinator: Rev. Msgr. Duane Moellenberndt
Telephone: (608) 837-7381 during normal business hours

As soon as a couple is engaged, they are expected to contact a priest of the parish at least one year (twelve months) in advance of the date on which they hope to celebrate their wedding.

When the priest has determined that there are no canonical impediments preventing the couple from marrying, the priest will book the date of the celebration of the wedding. The engaged couple is responsible for securing the date with the church before making commitments with caterers, reception halls, etc.

At least one of the couple should be an active, registered parishioner of Sacred Hearts and plan on worshipping with us regularly, before and after the ceremony.

During the twelve months prior to the wedding, a couple should explore their call to the sacrament of married life through learning, sharing, prayer, and growth in order to discover the blessings and insights your Christian heritage offers. Several aspects of this process will occur during these months prior to your wedding.
