How Do I Arrange To Get Married?

 

Firstly, congratulations!  There's quite a bit of paperwork involved so don't leave getting yourselves organised until the last minute!  It quite often depends upon where you and your fiance live and where you would like to be married as to how much paperwork you need to complete.

 

In the first instance ring the Parish Office on 0151 486 9885 as you will need to make an appointment with our Parish Priest, Father Matthew Nunes.  There is also a file at the bottom of this page that you may find helpful.

 

Prayer for Marriage

 

God our Father, we give you thanks for the gift of marriage: the bond of life and love, and the font of the family.  The love of husband and wife enriches your Church with children, fills the world with a multitude of spiritual fruitfulness and service and is the sign of the love of your Son, Jesus Christ for his Church.

 

The grace of Jesus flowed forth at Cana at the request of the Blessed Mother.  May your Son through the intercession of Mary, pour out upon us a new measure of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as we join with all people of good will to promote and protect the unique beauty of marriage.

 

May your Holy Spirit enlighten our society to treasure the heroic love of husband and wife and guide our leaders to sustain and protect the singular place of mothers and fathers in the lives of their children.  Father, we ask that our prayers be joined to those of the Virgin Mary, that your Word may transform our service so as to safeguard the incomparable splendor of marriage.

 

We ask all these things through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
