Weddings:
Marriage between two Christians is a living sign of God's love and has a deep value, both as a human relationship & as a sacrament.
If you wish to use the church for weddings you are requested to book at least six months ahead. Please note: Sunday weddings are unable to be booked due to the number of liturgies already scheduled. It is normal for a donation to be made for the use of the Church. If you require Fr Steven to be the celebrant for the wedding, please arrange to speak with him personally. 
You will also be required to attend a Marriage Preparation Course.
For further information contact the Parish Office to obtain a copy of our information brochure – Marriages in St Mary’s Church

Funerals:
Arrangements are made in consultation between the Parish, the Family and Funeral Director. Funeral Booklets may be produced on request provided sufficient notice is given, there is a minimal cost to cover expenses. Also, a vigil rosary can be conducted by a group of volunteers from St Mary’s and may be arranged either through the Funeral Director, Fr Steven or by contacting our parish representative. For additional information please contact the Parish Office.

Wedding Anniversaries:
On the last weekend of each month, couples who have celebrated a wedding anniversary during that month will be invited to receive a blessing at each Mass.
