"The well-being of the individual person and of both human and Christian society is closely bound up with the healthy state of conjugal and family life." (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1603)
"The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called "the domestic church," a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity." (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1666)
Although we recognize that all of your life has been preparing you for this new journey in faith, we believe that the seriousness of the marital commitment requires an equally serious time of immediate preparation set aside before the sacramental celebration. The preferred time frame to start the preparation is one year, and never less than six months prior to the wedding date.
All Saints parish community and the Catholic Diocese of Dallas cooperate in providing several different programs and services to help you formulate the most beneficial preparation program.
All those preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage at All Saints Catholic Church must read and know the Wedding Guidelines packet linked below. Please read through the packet and then contact us to get things started!
