Marriage

To schedule a wedding, engaged couples must meet with their Pastor at least 8 months before their proposed wedding date. Preparation for the sacrament includes attending a diocesan program such as Engaged Encounter or Pre Cana, and completing the FOCCUS Inventory. All couples of child-bearing age also need to take a full Natural Family Planning course. Pre-registration for each of these programs is mandatory for all marriages within the Diocese of St Augustine. Please contact the office to make arrangements with our pastor at 904-824- 8688.

Sponsors

Sponsors for all Sacraments must be active Catholics. Anyone asking to receive a document from the parish to be a sponsor for Baptism or Confirmation in another parish must be an active Catholic at OLGC. This implies regular Mass attendance and participation in the support of the community.
