"Congratulations on your engagement!"
Any Parishioner who wishes to marry should contact the pastor at least six months prior to the desired date. (Do not reserve a place for the wedding reception until you reserve a day and time for the church wedding.)
Please review our wedding policy below. It contains all of the information about celebrating a wedding liturgy at St. Bernard parish.

If you were married in a civil ceremony and wish to sacramentalize the marriage, please contact one of our priests or our deacon.
If you are planning to celebrate a 25th or 50th anniversary should contact the parish office well in advance of the desired date.
St. Bernard Wedding Policy
Only registered parishioners can be married at Saint Bernard Church. The lone exception to this rule is that if one is not a member, they can still schedule a wedding as long as their parents or grandparents belong to the parish.
To become a member, one needs to live within our parish boundaries. If one lives outside of our boundaries and desires to become a member of our faith community, they need to furnish a letter of permission from the pastor of the territory in which they live. Once we receive that letter from their pastor, they are free to join.New members who live outside of St. Bernard territory cannot begin the wedding process until they have been an active member for one year.Wedding Music Planning:For privacy, this area is password protected.Please contact your celebrant or the Director of Music to obtain the necessary password.Click here to enter the wedding music planning guide.
