The Sacrament of Marriage celebrates the covenant of love between two people and symbolizes, in that union, Christ's covenant of love for the Church.
Call St. Anthony Rectory at (973) 427-1478 to schedule a meeting with a Priest or Deacon as soon as you decide to set the wedding date (do not reserve your reception location before scheduling your date with the church).
All couples must attend Pre Cana, a daylong marriage preparation workshop designed to assist engaged couples in preparing for their life-long vocation of marriage. St. Anthony Parish offers Pre Cana twice a year, usually one Sunday in October and one Sunday in March. For dates, locations, and fee, contact Deacon Tony at 973-427-1478.
There are also weekend Pre Cana programs which can be found at the following websites:
