God did not create us to be solitary creatures. Because of this, the Saint Clare Pastoral Center offers both civil and religious unions to any couple seeking to be united in a holy and indissoluble bond; one that mirrors the love expressed by the beautiful words of Paul found in I Corinthians 13: 4-8: "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends."
A wedding is a special event in the life of a couple and therefore the ceremony should be an expression of their love and commitment to each other. Location is not a issue; inside or outside, within a church facility or private home, near the sea shore, in a forest, or at other locations that express the couple's desires. The ceremony can be in the Catholic tradition or ecumenical in nature. This is your special day.
Premarital meetings are available if desired. Although it is best to allow enough time (normally 3 to 4 months) in planning your wedding, we will always make every effort to accommodate your needs.
