Marriage



Couples considering marriage must contact a priest or deacon at least six months before the projected date.

A pre-marriage program must be attended by the couple before the marriage may take place. Please contact Mara Martin at 770-957-5441x101 or mmartin@stjamesapostle.com in the Parish Office for more information.

Our Wedding Guidelines contain helpful information for marriage preparation.


The 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. (1601)
