the Holy Spirit at Work
These documents are offered to help couples celebrate their marriage in an authentic, Christian way.
These norms especially try to channel the joy and happiness of the moment into a celebration worthy of our belief that human love is founded in the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit shared with us.
These norms complement the 1969 Rite of Marriage, and the 1983 Revised Code of Canon Law. While these norms give some directives, they are intended to be no more restrictive than necessary and are offered in a spirit of Christian joy and celebration.
