Ku-ring-gai Chase Catholic Parish
The Celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage
Parishioners who wish to be married in either parish community are to contact the Pastoral Centre as soon as possible after being engaged. It is important to coordinate all activities for your wedding. The use of the church can not be presumed on the day you may have in mind. Please do not book a reception venue without first contacting the parish to see if the church is available. It is usual to make an offering for both the church and the celebrant.
Couples from outside the parish need to supply a priest or deacon to be celebrant for their wedding. No booking is taken until the celebrant states in writing that he is willing to witness the marriage. There is a fee for the church set by the finance committee and the Pastoral Centre will advise this. After receiving the letter and the offering a booking is made and acknowledged by the parish in writing. If the wedding is cancelled there is no refund.
Government: birth certificates (no photocopies).
certificates are necessary for bride and groom, dated within six months of the
are held on Saturdays. Other days are also available.
