The Roman Catholic Church universally believes that the Sacrament of Marriage is between one man and one woman, according to God's natural law. The Church also believes that the Sacrament binds a man and woman together for life in a bond that cannot be dissolved. This unity and indissolubility opens a married couple to the intimate act that allows for the possibility of procreation, if it be God's will. Therefore, entering into the sacrament of Marriage must be taken seriously.
Any couple who desires to marry at Our Lady of the Alleghenies Church should contact the Pastor, Father Matthew Reese, no later than 9 months prior to the intended Wedding date. Please note that no date is set in stone until a couple first talks with the Pastor and verification of the date is coordinated with him and the parish calendar.
