Your Wedding at St. Anthony of Padua
Wedding Dates and Times
Weddings are celebrated on Saturdays at either 2:00pm or 7:30pm. Friday evening weddings may be scheduled if the Church is available.
Special week day wedding dates are permitted only if the parish schedule allows.
There are no weddings on Sundays or Holy Days of Obligations.
Rehearsal Dates and Times
Rehearsals are generally on the evening before the wedding at 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., or 8:00 p.m. Rehearsals are conducted by one of our St. Anthony of Padua Wedding Coordinator teams and last approximately 1 hour. Since multiple rehearsals are often scheduled for the same evening, rehearsals must start on time.
The wedding and rehearsal dates and times will be
scheduled with the Pastor’s Assistant at the first meeting.
