The Sacrament of Marriage
As you are aware your decision to marry is one of the most important and far reaching ones you will ever make in life. It is a decision to live a shared life. We believe it is also a decision that is blessed by God. The wedding ceremony celebrates your love and the love of God who brought you together. So we in the church have a real interest in you and your life together. We want to support you in the decision you have made.
Please make an appointment to see the Parish Priest on Mon, Wed, Thur, Friday between 8:30am and 2:00pm at the Community Centre Office which is beside the Church in Nambour. Alternatively meet with your own local Parish Priest.
It is particularly important that you take part in some form of pre-marriage education. It is one of the requirements of marriage in the churches in our Deanery that couples first of all participate in one such program. Most couples find them helpful and an enjoyable experience.
- Please return your completed pre-wedding information forms and also provide to the parish office:
- 1. original birth certificates for photocopying
- 2. copies of certificates of Baptism (if you have been baptized). (If baptized at St Joseph’s Nambour, we will have a record in our Register, so you will not need to provide a copy.)
You can download a pre-wedding information form here (one for each):
