Planning to get Married? Congratulations!
We rejoice with you! We hope you will use this special time to deepen your relationship. A wedding is only for a day; a marriage is for a lifetime. Some people wish to marry at Our Lady of Lourdes and others wish to be married elsewhere.
Can anyone prepare for marriage at Our Lady of Lourdes?
Sorry, we can’t prepare everyone, but we can help those who are:
- Registered parishioners (six months) / was a parishioner / is someone who lives in the Bay Area
- Someone who has the permission of their own pastor
How long does it take & What is the Wedding Donation?
The Oakland Diocese requires a six-month preparation period.
$2,000 for parishioners and $3,000 for non-parishioners. This includes use of the church, music, and priest.
What if we plan to get married at another parish?
We will prepare your required paperwork here and send it to the parish where you will be married.
A total fee of $150 for parishioners and $300 for non-parishioners covers the preparation of the required wedding document package.
Please fill out the form below. We will contact you shortly regarding your wedding inquiry.
