South Wight R.C.Parish, Sandown, Shanklin, Ventnor
Couples planning to get married should contact the Parish Priest at least 6 months prior to the celebration to make arrangements. One of the spouses must be living within the Parish Boundary and belong to the Catholic Church. There will be a preparation course and a process of collecting the necessary documents e.g. Baptismal Certificate or Birth Certificate if not baptised. Prior to marriage the engaged couple should contact the local Registry Office after consulting with the Parish Priest as to which church will hold the ceremony. (see form)
Important information about marriage can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. (www.vatican.va).
