Welcoming the Order of Celebrating Matrimony
9 N Clinton Ave
Bay Shore,NY 11706
A day of formation for clergy and parish leaders
On February 2, 2016, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, president of the USCCB, issued a Decree of Publication for the English translation of the Order of Celebrating Matrimony. He wrote that this ritual text “may be published and used in the Liturgy as of September 8, 2016, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and its use is mandatory as of December 30, 2016, the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. From that day forward, no other English edition of the Order of Celebrating Matrimony may be used in the dioceses of the United States.” The Spanish language edition of this rite, Ritual del Matrimonio, had already been published by the USCCB in 2010.
The workshops are intended for priests, deacons, parish musicians, and diocesan leaders who actively prepare couples for marriage and for the celebration of Matrimony.
