The Rehearsal The Wedding Coordinator will help facilitate your wedding rehearsal which will last 30 minutes to an hour.Because your rehearsal is usually only one of a number of commitments the coordinator and priest/deacon have scheduled, please be prompt for your rehearsal and the wedding itself.As such, it will be important for you to attend the Marriage Preparation Formal Classes or another approved program.Attendance at an Engaged Encounter Weekend is also required.All wedding and rehearsal arrangements need to be made in consultation with the priest/deacon from Sacred Heart who is officiating at your wedding.Do not set a firm date or time without consulting with the priest/deacon first!Sacred Heart has many very talented musicians who are anxious to assist at weddings.Regardless of who is doing your music, arrangements need to be made through and approved by the Wedding Coordinator.
Sacred Heart parish requires six months preparation for your “marriage” calling attention to the fact that the preparation is much more important than the planning of the wedding ceremony.
Often the Church is also scheduled for use immediately after your rehearsal or wedding.
Bring the marriage license to the rehearsal and give it to the minister.
She will be available to take care of any logistical or liturgical questions or concerns you may have, and will be the person to coordinate the following areas of your wedding with you and the minister officiating at your wedding.
The Liturgy According to diocesan guidelines two Catholics are encouraged to be married with a Mass.
