“The intimate community of life and love which constitutes the married state has been established by the Creator and endowed by Him with its own proper laws”. (CCC 1603)

The preparation for the Sacrament of Matrimony begins with a meeting with a priest or deacon 6 months before the wedding date.

For information on planning a wedding at OLPH please contact the parish secretary 6 months prior to the wedding date as required by Diocesan Guidelines, at 901-754-1204 ext 302 or click here to fill out an online Wedding Inquiry Form.

Information that you will need when you call:

  • What dates are you considering?
  • Have you contacted a Presider (priest or deacon to preside at your wedding)?
  • Will you celebrate the sacrament within a Mass?
  • In what parish are you registered?

Once you have selected a priest and decided upon a date, our Wedding Coordinator and Music Director will assist with further details.
