Sacrament of Marriage

Sacrament of Marriage

Congratulations on your Engagement! 

We are excited you chose our parish to celebrate this holy sacrament. Our Lady of the Rosary engage couples in the sacrament and we desire to help couples form strong, lasting marriages.  Couples who wish to marry at Our Lady of the Rosary are asked to:

  • Prior to planning contact Parish Office [email protected].
  • At least nine months before the desired date and any other arrangements are made (i.e. hall rental, invitation printing, attire selection, etc.), two previously unmarried people meet with Deacon Stephen, and begin gathering the required documentation to register the couple to go through two diocesan marriage preparation programs. The number of meetings will vary.  Contact Deacon Stephen at the Pastoral Center Office to schedule meeting or to discuss resolving prior marriages, (619) 234-4820 or via email, [email protected].
  • More specific questions? Contact the parish office at [email protected]

Due to the church being under restoration at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish we will not schedule any weddings to happen until after Sept 1, 2020. Please email [email protected] to see if there are any openings on the calendar for weddings after Sept 1, 2020.  

Most importantly at the time of your engagement, the Church welcomes you to this sacrament of Marriage in the spirit of Jesus who said:

This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
(John 15:12-13)
