Financial Support for Our Marriage Ministries at St. Thomas Aquinas

We ask the following support at each stage of the preparation process for weddings at St. Thomas Aquinas:

 

$ 300.00

Payable at First Meeting. This is for education fees including the Marriage Orientation Class and the five required classes:  Constructive Conflict Resolution, Natural Family Planning, Financial Foundations, Family Matters, and Reality Check. This fee also supports the Diocesan charges for the processing of the necessary paperwork.  Please make your check payable to St. Thomas Aquinas.

$ 325.00

Payable at Third (and final) Meeting.  This is for care and maintenance of the Church, compensation of the Wedding Coordinator, and the use of any Church supplies.   Please make your check payable to St. Thomas Aquinas.

$ 300.00

Fee for the Director of Music payable at the Third (and final) Meeting (unless you paid Mr. Conrady at your Music Meeting with him.)  Please make your check payable to Michael Conrady.

 

This fee is required whether the organ is used or not as it is a part of the contractual agreement with the resident musician. Soloists or additional musicians require an additional fee, to be discussed with Michael Conrady and directed appropriately.

We ask the following support for weddings which will occur outside the Parish (including International Weddings):

 

$ 300.00

Payable at First Meeting. Please make check payable to St. Thomas Aquinas.  This is the only fee for your Marriage Preparation here at St. Thomas.
