Marriage - Liturgy, Music, Rehearsals
Information for Celebrating your wedding in The Cathedral of St Stephen, St Stephen’s Chapel & St Patrick’s Church
In choosing to have your wedding at The Cathedral of St Stephen you are choosing to celebrate the Roman Catholic Rite of Marriage. While your priest will lead you step by step through the Rite of Marriage, we will provide the publication "When We Marry" to assist you in planning the wedding. Please take the time to work through this guide, noting what is and what is not, part of the Rite of Marriage. Particular care is needed to ensure Readings chosen are from the Scriptures and that music is appropriate to the Rite. Again your Priest celebrant will assist you to finalise your marriage ceremony.
If a wedding rehearsal is required it can be booked through the Cathedral office (3324 3030).
Rehearsals should not take any longer than 45 minutes. It is preferable to have the rehearsal before 4pm on any given day.
Please note car parking is not available for wedding rehearsals.
