Congratulations on your engagement! You are about to enter one of the most busy and blessed times in your lives. Our Lady of Light is excited to help you begin this journey as husband and wife. Please contact Suzi in the Parish Office to begin the marriage preparation process with us.
While marriage is a special blessing for Christians because of the grace of Christ, marriage is also a natural blessing and gift for everyone in all times and cultures.
It is a source of blessing to the couple, to their families, and to society and includes the wondrous gift of co-creating human life. Indeed, as Pope John Paul II never tired of reminding us, the future of humanity depends on marriage and the family.
