Holy 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

Planning Your Wedding
As you begin planning and preparation for your marriage in the Catholic Church, all of us at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish are here to assist you. 

Preparation for your wedding takes place in several stages. To assure ample time for a quality preparation, you as a couple must visit with one of the priests or deacons at least six (6) months prior to your anticipated wedding date.


Contact Karen Kotara to begin the process at least six months prior to the wedding. Karen can be reached at kkotara@olachurch.org or 404-261-7181 ext. 128 . At that time she will discuss the sequence of events that leads up to the wedding.
