Matrimony is a special sacrament by which two people become one, united in the Lord Jesus. It is a special sign to the whole Christian Community of the special love that Christ has for his church. Brides and grooms should begin their spiritual preparation with the parish priest as soon as they have determined to marry. Please contact us at our Parish Offices at (518) 235-3861. We hope to be able to assist you in this most sacred event.
“The family is entrusted to a man, a woman, and their children, so that they may become a communion of persons in the image of the union of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
–Pope Francis (Amoris Laetitia, no. 29)
“The sacrament of marriage is not a social convention, an empty ritual or merely the outward sign of commitment. The sacrament is a gift given for the sanctification and salvation of the spouses.”
–Pope Francis (Amoris Laetitia, No. 72)
“In the joys of their love and married life, He gives them here on earth a foretaste of the wedding feast of the Lamb. “
