Congratulations to the newly weds! May God send his blessings to you and the family you are about to start. The Cathedral Basilica parish strives to prepare you for a your wedding ceremony. Below, you will find more information on:
For your wedding to go smoothly, you should have received a booklet titled Together for Life, which contains the scripture readings that may be used in the ceremony and the texts for the Marriage Rite. When meeting with the priest or deacon who will be witnessing your marriage, you should discuss the readings and any other questions regarding your ceremony.
The Cathedral does not provide candelabra. Candelabra used in the Sanctuary for decoration must have glass shields to prevent dripping wax or being blown out by the ventilation system. The glass shields must be taller than the candles. Candelabra or candles may not be placed down the aisle or attached to the pews.
The Cathedral will provide altar candles. Wedding programs are acceptable but are done by and at the expense of the couple.
