From the January 5 bulletin article by Fr. Stan:
In recent weeks I have been writing quite a bit about Sacramental Marriage, which is marriage within the Church. I have also said that we will be having an event we are calling “My Big Fat Catholic Wedding”. We have a number of couples who have been married civilly, perhaps even with a minister of some sort present, but their marriage had not been blessed within the Catholic Church. These couples would like to get their marriage blessed at the Saturday evening Mass on February 22 and we would love even more couples to participate. To qualify, a couple needs to be otherwise free to marry in the Catholic Church – i.e., not in need of an annulment. If there are other issues, such as another marriage not recognized, let us know and we can work to resolve that in time for February. Couples will also need to attend a wedding workshop.
Following the blessing of the marriages at the 5:15 pm Mass on February 22, the parish will host a wedding reception in the Education Center complete with a social hour: meal, toasts, a dance, and free childcare. We will be setting up a method for parishioners to RSVP, as well as couples getting their marriage blessed and some of their friends. We very much want parishioners to celebrate along with the couples. This is truly celebrating Sacramental Marriage.
