THE SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY

Wedding rings

Marriages can take place at the church of Our Lady of Good Counsel or at St. Nicholas’.  Please speak to Fr. McGillycuddy if you would like to be married.  The Priest will then meet with you and guide you through the spiritual preparation for the Sacrament of Marriage.  

The Parish also has a Mothers’ Prayers and a Fathers’ Prayers group which meet on alternate weeks after Tuesday Mass at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church.
