Sacred Scripture begins with the creation and union of man and woman and ends with
“the wedding feast of the Lamb” (Rev 19:7, 9).
Scripture often refers to marriage, its origin and purpose, the meaning God gave to it, and its renewal in the covenant made by Jesus with his Church.
By their marriage, the couple witnesses Christ’s spousal love for the Church. One of the Nuptial Blessings in the liturgical celebration of marriage refers to this in saying,
“Father, you have made the union of man and wife so holy a mystery that it symbolizes the marriage of Christ and his Church.”
At Queen of Peace, Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday morning/afternoon ceremony times are possible. However, due to our Saturday 5p vigil mass, the latest wedding ceremony time allowed on a Saturday is 2p.
