For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to his or her spouse. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God’s values.

Couples interested in being married at Immaculate Conception Church in Elkton or Saint Jude Mission Church North East should contact the parish office at 410 398-1100 approximately one year in advance to schedule a meeting with a priest and learn about marriage preparation in the Catholic Church.
