The Sacrament of Matrimony is a solemn covenant of love and a sacramental bond between a woman and a man. It also involves a legal contract. Both the state and the Church, therefore, have laws and policies relating to marriage. State requirements may be discovered by contacting the Clerk of Court’s office.
All couples wishing to celebrate the sacrament of Matrimony at Sacred Heart of Jesus are required to participate in our marriage preparation program. The complete details of preparing for this sacrament will be discussed at your first interview. This interview should be scheduled at least six months prior to your intended date of marriage. This is the policy of the parish as well as the Diocese of Lafayette. Weddings are scheduled either on Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, or Saturday afternoons no later than 1:00 p.m. No Saturday evening weddings are permitted due to the weekend Mass schedule.
