Saint Mary of the Lake, is glad that you have chosen to celebrate your wedding in the Catholic Church according to your faith within the sacrament of Marriage. We will work with you to do everything necessary to make this happen. There are many things to do, and you have a lot of work ahead of you, but we can help you navigate this.
Saint Mary of the Lake we likes to involve as many people as possible in the ceremony. Not only can people read the readings, but can assist as ushers, servers and Eucharistic Ministers (if they have already been prepared for this ministry). We will work with you through all the details since there may be slight differences from parish to parish (usually because of the way the buildings are designed)and movies and television do not always accurately depict the Catholic wedding ceremony .
Please read through "Your Wedding at Saint Mary of the Lake"; it provides a good outline of all that is involved. To begin the process, please fill out the "Wedding Inquiry" form. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact one of us at 773-280-7700,
Fr. Manuel Dorantes
