Weddings at Madonna della Strada Chapel

Catholics believe that marriage comes as a gift from the hand of God. The Catholic vision of marriage is rooted in Sacred Scripture and is expressed in the teachings and practices of the Church. It has these main elements:

  • Marriage unites a couple in faithful and mutual love.
  • Marriage opens a couple to giving life.
  • Marriage is a way to respond to God’s call to holiness.
  • Marriage calls the couple to be a sign of Christ’s love in the world.
