Guidelines for your Marriage Ceremony in Tullylish

Congratulations on choosing to be married in church!

We wish you every blessing and we hope your wedding day will be full of memories that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

Marriage for Christians is the same as for everyone else: two people so much inh love that they want to spend the rest of their lives together.


Christians believe that by growing together in love they are also growing closer to Jesus. By having your wedding in church you are publivcly asking Jesus to be part Not only that. Your marriage will be an example for everyone in our parish. We need to see couples who are loving and caring, gentle and forgiving, because we need to be constantly reminded that these are Christ-like qualities.

 It has been said that 'success in mariage is more rhan finding the right person: it is a matter of beikng the right person".  

Because Christian marriage is a life-time commitmenmt the church attaches great importance to making sure you are properly prepared for it,. Before the great day we invite you both to talk over with us your hopes and expectations and your belief in Christgian marriage.

If one of you is not Catholic this is an important time to discuss any problems that might arise.

So please give us plenty of notice so that all the preparations can be fitted in.

The marriage cereomny usually takes place during Mass. It is imkortant to make the whole Service personal to you, and we will be glad to help you choose the Readings, the prayers and the music. Ask your family and friends to take part by reading, or saying the prayers. We'll give you all the advice and help you need.

The flowers, the photographs and the reception are all important, but the most important part of the day will be the marriage Service itself. That is the time when you make the love of Christ present to each other, and become a sign of the love of Christ to those around you.

So, work hard on it.

As you plan to arrange the celebration of your marriage in the Parish of Tullylish, it is necessary, then, that you consider the following guidelines in planning the Wedding Liturgy. (Some of the following are laws of the Church - Universal or Particular law - and /or requirements of the State and cannot be ignored).
