The marriage covenant, by which a man and a woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love, has been founded and endowed with its own special laws by the Creator. By its very nature it is ordered to the good of the couple, as well as to the generation and education of children.
Christ the Lord raised marriage between the baptized to the dignity of a sacrament whereby the man and woman receive a special grace to love each other with the love which Christ has loved his Church. It is for this reason that the sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and his bride the Church.
If you recently got engaged, we congratulate you and welcome you to contact the parish office to set up a time to speak with the parish priest here. We look forward to accompanying you on your final steps towards receiving this great sacrament within the Church and recommend that you contact us at least 9 months prior to your desired wedding date.
We are located just one mile from the Warehouse District in Peoria with easy access to a number of popular venues.
Saint Paul said: “Husands, love your wives, as Christ loved the Church…This is a great mystery, and I mean in reference to Christ and the Church.”
