Weddings at St. Anthony's
The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1601
We would be pleased to discuss the possibility of celebrating the Sacrament of Matrimony here at St. Anthony's which is generally provided for parishioners or those who have a familial connection with the parish or the area (parents, grandparents, summer residents.)
Parish guidelines for Weddings may be found in the document on the right.
Specific dates will not be given over the phone. Please schedule an appointment with Monsignor Avila by contacting the parish office at 508-548-0108 or email at email@example.com
Validation of a Civil or non-Catholic Marriage
Many people inquire about the possibility of having their civil or non-sacramental marriage "blessed" by the Catholic Church. Monsignor Avila would be more than happy to discuss this possibility with you. Contact the parish office to set up an appointment.
As soon as you have set your date for your wedding, it is suggested that you contact our Director of Music, Kathleen Kanaley. Your wedding music should reflect the sacred nature of marriage. It should speak of your commitment and faithfulness before God and the community of Faith. If you plan to bring your own musician or soloist, please notify Kathleen Kanaley. She will be happy to assist you with your music selections. She can be reached at 508-563-7628. For more information click on the "Wedding Music Information" on the sidebar.
