OOur Mother of Consolation Parish extends our congratulations on your engagement. We are blessed to have the opportunity to assist you during this sacred time of your life as you prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony. When you commit yourselves to each other in Christian Marriage, in accordance with the laws of the Church, you administer a sacrament to each other. Marriage enables you to be a source of Divine Love, flowing from your love for each other and into the lives of your family. The sacred words and ritual of this Sacrament are the beginning of a great ministry of life-giving love, based on the Gospel, and dependent on the power of God’s grace at work within. May this time of preparation for the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony be one of deepening love and understanding in your relationship with each other and with God.
