The Catechism of the Catholic Church (#1601) defines marriage as a covenant “by which a man and woman establish between themselves a partnership for the whole of life.”
Couples wanting to marry should call the Parish Office at 303-322-1119 at least ten months before the desired date of the wedding ceremony. This required length of time allows the priest or deacon who will officiate at the wedding to do the initial assessment of the couple’s freedom and readiness for marriage as well as the liturgical planning.
At Cure d’Ars we follow the regulations of the Archdiocese of Denver on the Sacrament of Matrimony. Please check the Archdiocesan website (http://www.archden.org) for more information about the guidelines or call Deacon Clarence through the Parish Office.
