Matrimony is a covenant or partnership of life between a man and woman, which is ordered to the well-being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children. When validly contracted between two baptized people, marriage is a sacrament.
Christ the King offers a program in cooperation with the Diocese of Des Moines to assist couples in preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage. All couples planning marriage will be asked to give notice (six-to-twelve months notice is recommended) to the Parish. Call the parish office, 285-2888 for further information regarding this pre-marriage preparation program.
We also have married couples from our Parish who assist in the Diocesan Pre-Marriage Workshops or the Parish Sponsor Couple Program.
Great Bible Verse... And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
