Couples Preparing for Marriage.

v     All couples wishing to get married must book the church and contact the local priest

      well in advance of making preparations for their wedding day.


v     All couples must complete the Pre-Nuptial inquiry Forms in their local parish at least six months before they wish to marry

Be at peace with your own soul,

then heaven and earth will be at peace with you.


Enter eagerly into the treasure houses that is within you,


and you will see the things that are in heaven,  for there is

but one single entry to them both.


The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within your soul.


Dive into yourself and in your soul and

you will discover the stairs

by which to ascend.


                                                St Isaac of Syria - Bishop of Nineveh (660-680)
