Marriage is a divine calling by which a man and a woman give themselves to each other in a lifelong partnership. It is an opportunity to experience the beauty of human love, a love that mirrors the love of God. It is a path to holiness, to being saints. Most people today still have very high ideals for marriage and hope to find their own happiness there. The future of our society and of our Church indeed all of humanity depends upon the health of our married and family life. Yet marriage is often misunderstood or
underappreciated today. All sorts of relationships are called marriages which are not. Many people delay getting married too long. They do not express their married love in building a family with God. They are confused about the meaning and place of sex in their lives before and after marriage. Many marriages are under pressure and some fail. We need to rediscover what marriage is all about.


    Most of the weddings in our church at Our Lady of the Rosary, Stirling East are on Saturday afternoons. Weddings may be celebrated on any week day and on Saturdays from 11am up until 3:30pm for the latest. To avoid disappointment contact the parish office as early as possible in your planning stages to check on the availability of the church.

    One of the first questions you will be asked is if you have been  previously married. If one or both of you have been previously married, and your previous spouse is not deceased, we will not be able to make a booking for the wedding but rather will offer to make an appointment for you to see the priest first.
