Weddings are celebrated at Corpus Christi Parish, South Tuggeranong
at either of two locations:
Holy Family Church, Gowrie or Sacred Heart Church, Calwell.
Times for weddings at both churches are set at 1pm and 3pm.
The Sacrament of Marriage is not celebrated on Sundays or during Holy Week.
To book a wedding in our parish, please contact the Parish Office to ensure the day and time you are requesting is available.
Think about whether you would like your wedding to be a Nuptial Mass (includes Liturgy of the Eucharist and is approx. 1hr – 1hr 10 mins) or a Prayer Service (approx. 45 mins).
We will make a temporary booking for you and email your details to the Priest. Once they have confirmed they can celebrate your wedding, we will be in touch with you to confirm an appointment to meet with them.
If you are having a priest who is not from our Parish, please ask them to contact the Parish Office so we can arrange
for them to have access to the church and provide them with any assistance with setting up.
Your celebrant will speak to you about Marriage Preparation and the Government and Church paperwork which will be need to be completed.
They will also discuss your liturgy and booklet, a rehearsal and assist with any other enquiries you may have.
Your Celebrant will also need to sight both your original Birth Certificates.
You will need to contact the parish where you were Baptised within six months of the wedding
and they will issue an extract from their Baptism register.
The donation for a wedding at either church is $500.
This can be paid electronically through our website
using Administration icon and accessing online payments and donations.
Please use “Wedding – your surnames and date of wedding” as a reference.
You may then like to email us with notification of your payment.
The donation for the Priest is $300 which is also payable at the link above.
Further information regarding marriage preparation etc., is available on the Archdiocesan web page.
