Free Catholic Church Wedding
St. Andrew Church has an ongoing project - "Operation I Do," which offers a Catholic Wedding ceremony and a modest reception for guests, absolutely free of charge.
This year’s free wedding is scheduled for June 24, 2017. “Operation I Do” is open to all Catholics who are living together in a common or civil law marriage, or to all couples who were never married civilly.
Operation I Do’s free wedding ceremony helps participants overcome hindrances in having a church wedding due to financial reasons and assists them in the daunting task of gathering documents or certificates to meet the requirements. Volunteer wedding counsels are available to assist in preparation and document gathering.
Requirements vary. But normally, only the baptismal certificate and marriage certificate (if already married civilly) are needed. Any Catholic (at least one of the couple, either the groom or bride must be Catholic) can register regardless of what Parish or Archdiocese they belong to or County and State they live in.
