The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God’s values. In the vocation of matrimony, husband and wife are called to be an image of how Christ has loved the church.
For the Sacrament of matrimony, an appointment must be made with the pastor six months in advance of the proposed date.
If you would like more information on any of the sacraments at Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, either call the Rectory at (718) 624-1572, or submit an email inquiry and you will be contacted by a member of the parish staff.
