Sacrament of Holy Matrimony
To schedule your wedding, please call the rectory to arrange an appointment with one of the parish priests/deacons at least six months to a year prior to the desired wedding date. Only a priest or a deacon can schedule a wedding date. Other parish staff cannot do it, even tentatively, either in person or over the phone.
Please read a copy of Monsignor Francis J. Maniscalco's FAQs for getting married at St. Thomas (click here). After the priest or deacon agrees upon your wedding date and time, call the rectory to arrange for your Pre Cana and Wedding Rehearsal dates.

At least a month ahead of your wedding, arrange to meet with the priest or deacon officiating at your wedding to personalize your wedding liturgy. St. Thomas the Apostle uses the booklet "Together for Life" for a Marriage with a Mass or the special edition for a Marriage Outside of Mass.
