Sacrament of Matrimony

Congratulations on your engagement! The St. Thomas More Catholic Community is excited to journey with you on your way towards the celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony and beyond! 

As you begin to prepare, please know that we are here to support you before, during, and after the big day. Marriage is a journey that requires love and support from your friends, family, and your faith community. You can count on our unceasing support through this lifelong adventure. 

 

First Steps: 

A minimum of six (6) to eight (8) months for sacramental formation and preparation is needed depending on individual circumstances. 

Please contact Pam Trendell at 702-361-3022 ext. 109 to schedule a meeting with our Pastor, Fr. Bede Wevita, to begin the preparation process. 

 

Scheduling Your Wedding Day: 

Your wedding date will be scheduled once you begin the process and meet with our Pastor. 

Weddings are normally scheduled on either Fridays at 4:00 pm or at 6:00 pm, Saturdays at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm or at 6:00 pm, or on Sundays during Mass times (pending availability). 

No other outside contracts or reservations should be made until an available date for the Sacrament of Marriage is confirmed with the parish. 

Once a date is chosen, you will be referred to Lisa Fairweather, our Director of Music. She will assist you in selecting appropriate music for your wedding. She will also assign a cantor for the ceremony and must approve any requests for guest musicians to participate in the wedding liturgy. 

 

Preparation: 

All couples are required to attend our weekend-long Engaged Experience. Learn more about our Engagement Experience Program.

Throughout the year, there will be other Marriage Enrichment opportunities that you are encouraged to attend. 

For more information about the preparation process, please feel free to reach out to John Rinaldo, Pastoral Associate for Adult Faith Formation at [email protected] or 702-476-2281

 

Suggested Donation: 

The suggested donation is $850.00, which also covers the costs of the Engaged Experience as well.
