I'M GETTING MARRIED! WHAT SHOULD I DO?

The decision to marry is one of the most significant decisions in life. Since it effects both State and Church there are certain requirements to be fulfilled:

Before the church can be booked couples will be required to complete the following:

  • Once you have chosen a date, please contact the parish to organise a meeting with the priest of your choice. At the time of this meeting the following will be addressed
  • The date/time/availability of the church and priest
  • The booking of the church. If you are not a parishioner of Holy Spirit the suggested booking fee is $150
  • Alternatively, the requirements of presiding over your wedding ceremony at another church or outside a sacred space.
  • Pre Marriage Course

It is a requirement that all couples intending to marry, participate in this preparation course. Please contact the:

Life, Marriage & Family Office on 02 8838 3440 or https://parralmf.org.au/pre-marriage-preparation/

for course dates and venues. This should be done at least six - eight months prior to the wedding.

  • PRENUPTIAL ENQUIRY FORM & NOTICE OF INTENDED MARRIAGE

It is essential to make an appointment with a priest to do this as soon as possible – after completing the Pre Marriage course and at least six months before the date of the wedding.

Both parties will need to bring the following documents to their second appointment with the priest.

  1. A full Birth Certificate or passport and drivers licence

  1. If either party has been married previously, evidence of freedom to remarry will be needed.

(i.e. death certificate of former spouse, annulment certificate etc.)

At the time of your second appointment with the priest the following will be addressed:

  1. Booking the church
  2. Completion of the State required Notice of Intended Marriage.  (Form 13)
