Congratulations on your recent engagement! We celebrate with you the joyful fact that God has brought you to this moment in your lives. We pray that this time of preparation will be one of grace, peace, and joy for you. The staff members of Holy Cross – Immaculata Parish are happy to help you prepare for the celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony. Our wedding policies are in place to ensure that the liturgy will be prayerful, and as a result, a more meaningful encounter with Christ for you. The policies of our parish reflect the policies of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for the Rite of Matrimony. A copy of these guidelines will be given to you and reviewed when you meet with our pastor.
The celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony is an action of the entire Church in whose presence you commit yourself to one another. It is an act of worship, and therefore communal. That is why many things that might take place outside an act of worship are not appropriate to include in a Catholic wedding ceremony. It is our goal to assist you in planning a celebration that will facilitate prayerful participation among your guests.
Since our church will have a significant place in your married life, we welcome you to consider becoming members of Holy Cross – Immaculata Parish. We invite you to join us at Mass, prayer services, spiritual enrichment programs, and social events that are scheduled throughout the year. We invite couples who do not live in Cincinnati to visit any time you are in town!
If you have questions that are not answered within these pages, please contact the parish office at 513-721-6544 or email the wedding coordinator.
If all of this seems overwhelming, it may be helpful to remember that these guidelines and policies are the result of many years of experience celebrating weddings at our parish.
Be assured that these guidelines arise out of our desire to help you prepare a wedding ceremony which will be prayerful, dignified and memorable.
For any questions or clarifications, please contact the parish office.
We will work with you in any way possible to make the planning process as stress-free as possible!
