These are the 6 main steps to get married at St Patrick parish:
STEP 1 – Set the Wedding Date – Contact the parish office to set the wedding date. We try to reserve dates for weddings six months to a year in advance. A wedding date is reserved after 50% deposit is paid.
Please note that if an annulment or dispensation is required, no wedding date can be set until the process is completed.
STEP 2 – Meet with the priest to start the wedding preparation. Once you have set the date, schedule a meeting with your local pastor in order to begin your marriage preparation. If you live outside of Oregon, you can do this with your local priest.
IF POSSIBLE READ WEDDING GUIDELINES BEFORE THE MEETING.
If this is not a first marriage for you and/or your fiancé, or if one of you is not Catholic, please talk to the Catholic priest about this before advancing with the planning of the wedding.

STEP 4: RESERVE THE CHURCH: Once it is determined the church is available on your proposed date and time, you have read the wedding guidelines and the pastor or other priest is available to preside, please send the confirmation form.
STEP 5 – TAKE MARRIAGE PREP CLASSES
STEP 6: PLAN THE WEDDING LITURGY – A wedding coordinator will be assigned to you and she will contact you and arrange a meeting to go through the different steps and details of the ceremony.
