Sacrament of marriage Brisbane Oratory

The Catholic Sacrament of Marriage is a life long union between one man and one woman which cannot be dissolved. There are two purposes of a Catholic marriage. First, marriage unites husband and wife in a life long bond of love, fidelity, and mutual support. Secondly, the other purpose of marriage is procreation, that is, as contained in Catholic wedding promises, to have children and raise them in the Catholic faith. The Sacrament of Marriage provides God’s special graces to fulfil these promises made on your wedding day.

Since marriage is such an important step and commitment some spiritual preparation is necessary and this is arranged through the parish. This is why we advise you to contact the parish as soon as you are seeking to be married.


To discuss your marriage please call the Parish Office where we will begin the process and you will be put in touch with the Duty Priest who is one of the Fathers of the Oratory. They will discuss marriage preparation and arrange a date with you. If you know which Oratory Father you would like to celebrate your wedding you can speak to them directly.
