The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.(CCC 1661)

To receive the Sacrament of Marriage, at least one of the parties seeking to marry must be Roman Catholic.  To be considered a parishioner, either the bride or the groom must be registered at Holy Spirit for at least 12 months before scheduling a wedding date and be a visible and practicing Catholic on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation and have a record of financial support of the parish through the use of the offertory envelopes.  As a courtesy to our registered, active parishioners who meet the above criteria, the Parish will consider offering the use of the church to those parishioners’ children and grandchildren.   It is required by the Diocese of Charleston that those seeking to have their marriage celebrated in the Church notify the Pastor a minimum of 6 months prior to the requested date. A preparation plan with classes will be established according to each situation.  Parishioners and Non Parishioners should email the Wedding Coordinator for more information.

Days on which weddings are not celebrated include:  Sundays, Holy Days of Obligation, the season of Lent, the days of the Sacred Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday), the weekend of Easter and the weekend after Easter, Thanksgiving weekend, the weekend after Christmas, New Year’s Eve and All Souls’ Day.  Some dates may be excluded due to parish events.  Please contact the Parish Wedding Coordinator before booking any venues.
