Scheduling a Wedding at St John Neumann


The Sacrament of Matrimony “Christian marriage, as a reflection of the union between Christ and his Church, is fully realized in the union between a man and a woman who give themselves to each other in a free, faithful and exclusive love, who belong to each other until death and are open to the transmission of life, and are consecrated by the sacrament, which grants them the grace to become a domestic church and a leaven of new life for society.” 292 Amoris Laetitia

To book your wedding at St. John Neumann, please follow these 4 simple steps:

  1. Please complete the Marriage Intake Form.
  2. Please read the “Guide to Sacramental Marriage“.
  3. Upon receipt of your Marriage Intake Form, a parish staff member will call you for more details.
  4. A priest or deacon will then call you to setup an orientation and welcome.

At this time, due to our limited resources, we are not holding destination weddings at St John Neumann. We consider destination weddings to be when both bride and groom live outside Austin and neither parent are members of St John Neumann.
