Holy Matrimony

At Saint Thomas couples planning to marry are expected to to meet several times with the priest or the Deacon who will preside at the wedding liturgy . The period of preparation required is at least 6 months to one year, so that all arrangements can be worked out well before the wedding. Either the bride,  groom or our summer residence must be a registered member of the parish. Anyone interested should call the parish office (609-266-2123, ext. 3).
