Marriage

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God’s values. [Couples should contact the church (504) 525-1551 at least 6 months prior to the date of the wedding. A marriage preparation program is required by the church.]
