Diocese of Phoenix Marriage Policy: Covenant of Love
Marriage is of tremendous value to the Church, and how couples prepare for it and enter it is of utmost importance. In the Diocese of Phoenix, we are taking preparation for this beautiful and life-giving Vocation very seriously.
Read the Diocesan policy for Marriages HERE.
