Wedding Information

 

Congratulations on your decision to be married in the Church and at St. Francis of Assisi. To assist in your preparations, we want to outline what you need to obtain before setting up an appointment with our Wedding Coordinator.

We need a recent copy, printed less than 6 months prior, of your Baptism Certificate, if baptized in the Catholic Church. You will need to contact the church of your Baptism and request your “Baptismal Certificate with Notations”. This certificate should have notations on the back of your 1st Communion and Confirmation dates, if completed. If there are no notations listed, a recent copy of both First Communion and Confirmation are required. If you attend another Church, we must have permission from that Pastor to arrange your wedding at St. Francis Parish. Simply contact your Church Office and ask for a letter of permission.

Once you have obtained your documents, please email Francie Marchetti or call her at the Parish Office to set up an appointment. A $100.00 deposit is required to schedule your date request. Please note that if you do not have a recent copy of your Sacraments and Letter of Permission from your Pastor (if applicable) at your first appointment, your date will not be scheduled.
