Congratulations on your recent engagement! We celebrate that God has brought you and your fiancé to this moment in your lives and pray that this time of preparation will be one of grace, peace, and joy for you and your families. We are a popular choice for both parishioner and non-parishioner weddings due to our beautiful church and convenient downtown location. Since we are host to many weddings every year, these wedding policies are designed to assist you in your planning. If you have questions that are not answered within these pages, please contact us at 513-721-4045.
