The marriage covenant, by which a man and a woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love, has been founded and endowed with its own special laws by the Creator. By its very nature it is ordered to the good of the couple, as well as to the generation and education of children. Christ the Lord raised marriage between the baptized to the dignity of a sacrament.
The Joliet Diocese requires there be a minimum of six months' time for a couple to prepare for marriage in the Catholic Church. Before a wedding date can be confirmed, each couple must meet with one of our parish priests.
Weddings at Notre Dame are scheduled on Saturdays at 2 pm (the church and parking lot must be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation at 4 pm and the 5 pm Mass). Weddings may also be scheduled on Fridays from 3 pm until 7 pm. Weddings are not scheduled on Sundays.
