What Is Marriage? Marriage is a natural institution established by God the Creator. It is a permanent, faithful, fruitful partnership between one man and one woman, established by their free mutual consent. It has two purposes: the good of the spouses, called the unitive purpose, and the procreation and education of children. Marriage is not merely a private institution, it is the foundation of the family. Marriage is a sacrament that “bears the imprint of God’s love. “ 2016 Copyright USCCB web site Download the Wedding Packet 2018 The packet includes a registration/contract (that must be filled out and returned to the parish office), suggestions/guidelines for readings and music for weddings and the flow of the Wedding Mass.
