Just in time for the matrimonial season, the USCCB has announced a new video intended for engaged couples which serves as an introduction to the Rite of Marriage and answers questions frequently asked about Catholic marriage. The video, “Saying I Do: What Happens at a Catholic Wedding,” includes a brief overview of the sacrament and an explanation of the three forms of the Rite of Marriage. 

According to BCDW Associate Director, Rev. Daniel Merz, “The video is a great way to help people to visualize the Catholic way of celebrating weddings. It’s good to get these images in our heads rather than more secular ones that really don’t reflect Christian marriage.”
