A few more wedding hostesses are needed for the upcoming wedding season. This is a wonderful way to minister to couples and their families at a most significant time in their lives. The hostess assists and guides couples during their wedding rehearsal and liturgy. Usually two hostesses are assigned to each wedding according to their availability.

Here is a message from our head of Wedding Hostesses, Lisa Daly:

The first time your life changed so completely was probably on your wedding day. You were so excited, thrilled, and on cloud nine. The day went by so fast! Every time we assist with a wedding, we relive our own wedding a bit and have a peek into a future family.  As we meet these two families at the rehearsal, there is a glimpse at this new union. There is the hustle and bustle as we prepare our church for this beautiful sacrament-gorgeous flowers, candles, a runner, and communion.  An incredible transformation occurs during the wedding ceremony when this couple’s new life truly begins as one. Remember that great feeling!  To witness and share in this lovely ministry is a gift.   We are in need of a few more hands to pin boutonnieres and set our church for this awesome day.   Weddings are a lot of work, sometimes a little crazy, but very rewarding.   Please give us a call, so that you too can have a chance to remember your magical day and watch a couple grow up right before your very own eyes.

If you can help, please contact Lisa at LisaPrincs@aol.com or the Liturgy Office.
