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 and a registered, active, and participating parishioner of Holy Spirit Parish (or a direct relative of a registered parishioner).  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.
