Planning the Liturgy

 Planning the Liturgy for your Marriage



At the time of your Pre-Cana, you will be given materials that will help you to plan your wedding celebration. About two months before your wedding, make an appointment with __________________________ for help in planning your liturgy. Your celebration should include prayers and readings that reflect your faith in God and in each other.

Some of the ways in which family members and friends can participate in special ways are:


  • Proclaiming the Scripture readings
  • Reading the Prayer of the Faithful
  • Bringing up the gifts
  • Serving as Ministers of Communion

Each of these ministries presumes some training and experience. Please choose people who are experienced to serve as these special ministers.

There are several books to help you choose appropriate readings.
