Marriage and Weddings
Persons interested in Marriage Preparation and Weddings at San Felipe must contact the pastor directly (505-243-4628) to begin the process.
All couples will spend a minimum of six months of formation in preparation for marriage.
Currently registered and active members of San Felipe de Neri Parish begin by meeting with the pastor. Wedding dates will only be set after it has been determined that both parties are free to marry, verified with current copies of their baptism certificates.
Couples who are members of other parishes begin their marriage preparation in their respective parishes. Wedding dates at San Felipe will only be considered after the parish in which the couple is preparing for marriage communicates with the pastor to establish their freedom to marry, and indicates that the couple is in fact preparing for marriage in that parish.
Marriage Preparation will include:
- Interviews to establish Freedom to Marry
- Conversations with the clergy of the parish concerning Christian Marriage: Permanence, Fidelity, Unity, and the Procreative nature of marriage
- Pre-Cana Retreat Experience
- Introduction to Natural Family Planning
Weddings typically take place on Saturdays at 1:00pm. (A later time is not possible).
Friday evenings are possible.
Please note that the parish does not offer a bridal preparation room.
