"By assisting brides and grooms with a smooth celebration we will be contributing to the joy of their wedding day and ideally it will be a source of evangelization, too."
Rev. Sean Horrigan, Pastor
Members of the Wedding Guild will assist the clergy by helping with details surrounding our celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage. Each year we celebrate between 40-50 weddings. Some are quite small, but others involve a number of people. The members of the Wedding Guild will assist by leading rehearsals on Friday nights and being present before, during and after the ceremony on Saturdays. They will be the primary liaison between the couple and the parish, and will help ensure that the celebration of the sacrament runs smoothly so that it may be a joyful (and stress-less) day for everyone involved.
Members of the Wedding Guild will be our parish Wedding Coordinators. They won’t be involved in the spiritual preparation of the couple for the sacrament, but rather will be called upon for about four hours (one on Friday, and typically three on Saturday) for any given wedding. A team of individuals is preferred for the Wedding Guild so that they may work together to help spread the load.
CtR will provide all the training you need. Please consider helping the parish in this most important role. It will fill a real need for CtR and be a great blessing for the parish, the clergy and our couples who are married here at CtR.
