Sacraments of Vocation
If you wish to marry in the Catholic Church, you or your fiancée must be a baptised Catholic (a copy of your Baptism Certificate is required). Contact the Priest at least six months prior to your wedding day.
You and your fiancée are required to attend a Pre Marriage Preparation Course, ideally several months before your wedding day. These courses are run throughout the year, and are managed by the Diocesan Centre. To book into one of these courses please call the Co-ordinator of Marriage Preparation on +64 9 360 3025 or visit www.catholicmarriage.org.nz for more information.
If you have been previously married and hope to enter into another marriage in the Catholic Church make an appointment to speak to the Parish Priest as soon as possible. Alternately you may wish to contact the Marriage Tribunal Office Staff who are most helpful. Because of the time and work involved in the Annulment Process, there is a charge, however do not let that deter you from speaking with them about any problems or difficulties. Phone +64 9 360 3030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
