THE SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE

Catholic marriage, also called matrimony, a "covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament. " U.S. Catholic Catechism for Adults, p. 281

The Sacrament of Marriage is a covenant relationship between the husband and wife, a permanent union of persons capable of knowing and loving each other and God. For practical marriage arrangements and information click on "How do I..." Get Married
