SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE AT ST. MARY’S CHURCH

Engaged couples who are interested in celebrating the sacrament of marriage in the Catholic Church are welcome to contact St. Mary’s Church.   An initial meeting is required between pastor and couple before proceeding.  To schedule a meeting with him you may call him at 651-222-2619 X2 or send an email at frbenny@usfamily.net

Couples also need to contact St. Mary’s wedding coordinator and music director, register for a marriage preparation retreat, and provide requested documents.  Our wedding coordinator will assist with details and the ceremony and wedding rehearsal.  A non-refundable $300.00 deposit is required when securing a wedding date with the wedding coordinator. 

The cost of a wedding at St. Mary’s is $1,500.00 for parishioners and $2,000.00 for those not registered in the parish for a minimum of one year.  This fee includes all parish preparation, use of the church for the rehearsal and wedding, and the services of St. Mary’s pastor, wedding coordinator and musicians.  Additional guidelines are outlined in Planning Your Liturgy and Wedding Music at the Church of St. Mary.  Contact information for the wedding coordinator may be obtained from the pastor at your initial meeting.
