Congratulations on Your Recent Engagement!

Mariage image 3The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.

We are happy you are interested in beginning your marriage preparations at St. Robert Bellarmine Parish. For your convenience most of the necessary documents and information you will need are listed below.  We would like to invite you to call the parish office at 215.343.0315 to schedule an appointment to speak with a priest to set your date and begin your marriage preparation.  It is important that you begin this process at least 6 months prior to your wedding date.
