Dominic's Catholic Church, Torrance
| Couples request marriage
after they become sure they love each another and have
a desire to begin a family of their own.
Marriage is one of The Seven
Sacraments and through the free exchange of vows spouses
create an unbreakable bond with each other for the rest
of their lives.
Normally to marry in St. Dominic's at least one of the
parties should live within the parish. We ask for at least
6 months notice of your intention to marry so that we
can make the necessary arrangement and spiritual preparation
and ensure you can have the date of your choice.
Please speak to one of the priests to arrange an appointment.

the water that was made wine, and did not know where it
came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew),
the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And he
said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets out
