PRAYING  BELIEVERS

as a  GATHERED  COMMUNITY

and  ALONE  with the  ONE  GOD

 

As Jesus the Christ was Anointed:  PRIEST, Prophet, and King,

so may you live always as a member of his body...

from the Rite of Baptism

 

To be a baptized follower of Jesus Christ is to be a priest in the common priesthood of believers.

To be a priest is to be in relationship with the one God in the three persons of the Holy Trinity

                     of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Following the example of Jesus, who spent massive amounts of his time alone with his Abba,

                     we seek to be a people of prayer and a people of mercy.

- Fr. Steve Wolf, Pastor

MARRIAGE

 

Engaged couples can be prepared for the Sacrament of Marriage by any of the priests or deacons. The Diocese of Nashville calls for a minimum preparation period of four months.

 

Weddings on Saturdays are usually scheduled at either the Old Chapel or the Main Church to begin at a time from 10:00 am to Noon, 2:00 pm, or 7:00 pm. On First Saturdays, only the Main Church is available. 

 

The best first step is to schedule the Old Chapel or the Main Church with Judy Spink in the parish office at icsecretary@immaconception.org or 931-645-6275, ext. 104. She will then ask the deacon or priest you wish to witness your Marriage if he is available.
