Sacrament of Matrimony

St. Vincent Pallotti Parish is blessed to have two beautiful churches, St. Joseph and St. Patrick. Each with their own character and history.

Our goal is to make your experience a memorable one and welcome you as you start your lives together and become part of our parish family.

It is expected that one of the engaged couples be registered and a member in good standing for at least six months prior to scheduling a wedding. Once you become engaged and before you secure a date for your reception, it is most important to meet with the pastor of St. Vincent Pallotti Parish. Please call the Parish Office at least 6 months before you plan on getting married at 734-285-9840, ext. 100.

Once your wedding date is confirmed with the priest, please look over the items below to help with your wedding planning. When you meet with the pastor, he will also be giving you all this information. If you have questions on the items below, please call the Parish Office at 734-285-9840, ext. 100.

Sacrament of Marriage-Including Mass-Both couples should be baptized Catholic
Sacrament of Marriage-Service Only-One of the Couples needs to be baptized Catholic
Sacrament of Marriage-Convalidation (for those previously married civilly), it is expected that one of the couples be baptized Catholic.

Please Note!:

The Wayne County Clerk’s office is open by appointment only. You may schedule your appointment at any time, but you cannot schedule the date to apply in person for the license more than 30 days in advance of the wedding date.
Again, you may schedule on-line the date to apply in person at any time, however be sure to schedule it no sooner than 30 days prior to the wedding date. Do not delay scheduling your on-line appointment as there is a high volume of applicants!

Mark 10:6-9
“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
