The Sacrament of Matrimony

The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1601

In order to be married at St. Jude The Apostle Church:

-  Both the bride and groom must be free to marry in the Church.  This means either not have been previously married, or having a valid annulment in the Church.  We cannot schedule a wedding if an annulment is in progress.

-  The couple must meet all Diocesan and Parish requirements.  (Paperwork, licensing, marriage preparation, etc.)

-  At least one of the couple must be a registered parishioner, or have an immediate family member that is.

For more information about having your wedding at St.Jude's, please contact the Parish Office at 302-644-7300 or email at
