Marriage: What God has joined, let no Man divide
As Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage (or Holy Matrimony) is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to another person. Through a vow made before friends, family and God, marriage represents a commitment to creating life and nurturing life by caring for one another. By offering their lives to one another, couples also unite their union to the offering that Christ made to his Church.
Scheduling a wedding begins by calling the Front Desk at 480.948.7460 at least 9 months in advance and completing the steps below.
The Casa offers life skills retreats as part of marriage preparation to help couples discuss and discern their upcoming commitment. See our calendar of Programs & Retreats for:
