If possible, the celebration of the sacrament of Matrimony should be deferred until such time that people can gather in numbers safely. However, if this is not possible and only in the most pressing of circumstances, then those present for the marriage should be restricted to the celebrant, bride and groom and immediate family, and if necessary, the legal Registrar.
Any parishioner, i.e. resident within parish boundaries who is intending to get married, either here or elsewhere, should be aware that a minimum of six months is necessary to complete all the preparations, both spiritual and paperwork. If you have any queries about marriage, please contact Fr. Javier.
