"That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body.”Genesis 2:24
For couples planning on a wedding at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel/Holy Spirit parishes
The Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is a blessed event and the foundation of our Church community. We are pleased to assist you in this most important commitment. A Wedding Guide is available with information to assist you in planning a Catholic Church wedding. Catholic weddings may only be performed in a Catholic Church.
The Diocese of Trenton rules require couples to contact the parish office at least 1 year prior to the date planned for your wedding to make arrangements for a series of wedding preparation meetings with celebrant.
Weddings may take place on any day of the week except during Holy Week and Easter. On Saturday no wedding may take place after 2 PM in the OLMC Church so as not to interfere with the regular mass schedule
Catholics must provide a recently issued (within last 6 months) baptismal certificate with notations.
Christian non-Catholics should provide a certificate or letter of baptism from their church
Wedding Masses are available for Catholic couples. Weddings between Catholics and Christian non-Catholics or non-Christians will be ceremonies only. At least one of the parties must be a Parishioner.
