My wife and I will be getting our marriage blessed (or convalidated) on May 22nd. I am curious as to what is involved.
We were married by a justice of the peace 20 years ago. I was raised Methodist and my wife was raised Catholic. Last year, we embarked on a faith journey that found us enrolled in the RCIA program at our local Parish and we both received the Sacrament of Confirmation at the Easter Vigil this year. It has been a wonderful addition to our lives. The next step is to bring the Lord into our Marriage.
I have had a couple of conversations with our Pastor on providing the details of our marriage and selecting a date. This is going to be a very small event. I don’t want to say informal, as we are inviting the Lord into our relationship, but we have no family that will be able to attend due to location and timing. We are thinking that it would be our neighbors (who were our sponsors) to act as witnesses and perhaps a few people from our RCIA program.
Our Pastor is very busy right now as our Parish has just kicked off the capital campaign on remodeling our Church. is is a very big project. We do have a meeting set up for the 15th to do some planning on the event and get some details. I was just curious if someone could give me some idea of what to expect.
