Mother of Mercy Parish warmly welcomes couples wishing to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage. The Parish has three Churches, Our Lady Help of Christians at Hendra, St John’s Church at Northgate and St. Cecilia’s at Hamilton (click here for location maps).
Churches have AV facilities as well as an organ and/or piano to accommodate wedding music. Flowers and booklets are by own arrangement.
An initial Marriage Enquiry interview with the Parish Priest is required at least 6 months prior to the intended date of the wedding. The preparation of marriage documents will be commenced at this meeting as well as confirmation of the date of the wedding.
At this meeting, couples are required to provide the Parish with a copy of the Bride and Groom’s Birth, Baptism and Confirmation certificates. Couples are also required to attend a Marriage Preparation Course (Centacare, Anglicare, Spiritus) before their marriage takes place. Further meetings with the Parish Priest will be as required (at least 6 meetings to complete the pre-marriage documentation and undertake pre-marriage preparation via the FOCUSS program).
If you have any questions or queries, or would like to check church availability please contact the Parish Office on (07) 3268 3040 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
