What do I need to do?
The bride or groom must be active, registered members of the parish prior to reserving a date for a wedding. In addition to the parish registration criteria, the diocese requires that arrangements must be made at least six months in advance of the wedding date in order for the proper personal, spiritual and liturgical preparation of the couple to be completed.
Marriage preparation is an important part of planning a wedding, so please contact the parish office (505-865-7385) at least six months prior to your desired wedding date to check availability of your desired wedding date and time. The parish will reserve a date and time if it is available but will not finalize your desired wedding date until the wedding preparation process is complete so please call early. There is a $250.00 stipend for weddings.
San Clemente provides personalized and individual marriage preparation for couples Call the parish office (505-865-7385) to register for Preparation for Marriage classes.
