“O God, who consecrated the bond of Marriage by so great a mystery that in the wedding covenant you foreshadow the Sacrament of Christ and his Church, grant, we pray, to these your servants, that what they receive in faith they may live out in deeds.”

Collect Wedding Ritual

Our wedding coordinators love the Catholic marriage ritual and desire to serve others in this joyous ministry. They appreciate the importance of working with adults and their families at a critical stage in their faith life. Coordinators conduct the wedding rehearsal with another hostess (usually the evening before the wedding), arrive an hour before the wedding to make sure that all is ready and to greet the couple and their guests. Coordinators ensure that the liturgy or ceremony runs smoothly and stay after to make sure that everything is put away before the weekend liturgies.

Initial Training: Hands-on training with an experienced wedding hostess
Time Commitment: 1 – 2 times per month (busiest time is May – end of October)
