"The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament this perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life

(cf. Council of Trent: DS 1799)." Catechism, 1661

Please note: The Diocese of Biloxi requires that engaged couples should begin the

Marriage Preparation process no fewer than six months prior to the anticipated wedding date.

Wedding dates CANNOT BE SCHEDULED until the engaged couple contacts and meets with

the Family Life Coordinator.

You are welcome to simply call the office, the direct line listed below, to set an appointment, or if you have any questions about the process.
