Marriage

Congratulations on your engagement. Your decision to enter into the relationship of married life is a sign of love, hope and strength for the entire community.

Due to the volume of weddings requests and the large number of parishioners, weddings are celebrated for registered parishioners only. Either the bride or groom, or their parents must be a registered, participating members of Holy Name Cathedral.

If you are not currently a registered member, but you attend Mass at HNC on most weekends, and if you intend to be an active, contributing member of our parish community, you are welcome to register at 730 N. Wabash on Monday – Friday, 8:30 AM to 7:30 PM and Saturday and Sunday, 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM.

After four months of participation at the Cathedral, you will be eligible to reserve a wedding date for the celebration of your marriage.

PREPARATION: A minimum of six (6) months advanced planning and preparation prior to the wedding date is required.
