My fiancé and I have not attended church for a long time. Can we still get married in your church?
If you would like to marry in any Catholic Church, it is important to establish a tradition of attending mass regularly. In this way, you will become re-acquainted with the prayers and rituals in the Mass and you will get to know a priest with whom you feel comfortable enough to invite to accompany you in the journey through the preparation and the ceremony. Please discuss this further during your initial interview with a Cathedral priest.
