marriage

Congratulations on your engagement!
The preparation process for a Catholic wedding requires a minimum of six months time. Most couples plan 12 months or more in advance when reserving their date to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony. First review our guidelines (Wedding Guidelines English or Pautas de la Boda Español) for celebrating the Sacrament of Matrimony at Saint Vincent de Paul Church. Next call the office to schedule an appointment with a Priest or Deacon to begin the preparation process. Only the Priest may reserve wedding dates and times. After securing your wedding date and time with the Priest you may reserve with confidence your reception venue.
Our focus is on celebrating the Sacrament of Matrimony for our Parish members. We cannot be a wedding venue for non-parishioners.

To contact a Priest or Deacon please call 714.842.3000.

Natural Family Planning

Many people are taking the time to learn about healthy lifestyles and are putting what they learn into practice. To avoid artificial contraception, couples can now receive education about the woman’s fertility cycle and use this information to achieve or postpone pregnancy.
