Catholic Vows


Catholic Vows

According to the rite of marriage number 34, the vows will be preceded by three questions which the priest will ask the couple:

"(Name) and (name), have you come here freely and without reservation to give yourselves to each other in marriage?"

"Will you honor each other as man and wife for the rest of your lives?"

"Will you accept children lovingly from God, and bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?"
The bride and groom respond "I will" or "yes"

Catholic wedding ceremonies generally involve a sixteen step process. It is best to discuss the process with your priest and determine what alterations are permitted. Although there are many variations of the traditional catholic wedding vow this is a common example:


Do you take ___ as your lawful wife/husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish until death do you part?"


I do


I take this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness in the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit.
