Celebrating Marriage #30136672
An invaluable step-by-step resource for preparing wedding liturgies, this fourth edition is practical, comprehensive and informative—ideal for all involved in the marriage rite.
Now in its fourth edition, Celebrating Marriage: Preparing the Roman Catholic Wedding Liturgy continues to be an invaluable resource for everyone involved in the Roman Catholic rite of matrimony.
This latest edition reflects the Order of Celebrating Matrimony as promulgated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2016, the first major revision since the English-language rite was promulgated in 1970.
Practical and comprehensive, this step-by-step workbook is designed to assist engaged couples as they prepare the wedding liturgy. Chapters include information on the history of wedding traditions, the actual texts for the liturgy
(prayers and readings) and advice regarding music and environment. A complete planning guide, sample orders of service, musical suggestions and more help to simplify and streamline every aspect of preparing the liturgy.
Paul Covino served, once again, as editor, while Elaine Rendler-McQueeney and John Buscemi contributed from their vast experience with music and environment respectively. The work of the late Lawrence Madden, SJ, was also drawn upon for the chapter on Scripture texts.
A must-have for the Marriage Preparation Program in any parish, this popular book brings couples closer together as they prepare for married life, with the added benefit of a celebration that is festive and memorable for all involved.
