Marriage Preparation

Couples who wish to receive the Sacrament of Marriage must be registered and active members of the Our Lady Star of the Sea (OLSS). Exceptions can be made for couples who are not parishioners, but they must have a valid reason for choosing OLSS (e.g., relatives who reside in New Smyrna and cannot travel out of town, the majority of family and friends reside in New Smyrna, etc.)

If you will be receiving preparation here at OLSS or at another parish withing the Catholic Diocese of Orlando,  you can find helpful guidelines and resources regarding Sacrament of Marriage here:

The date and time of the wedding ceremony must be set at least 6 months in advance. 
Weddings can be scheduled on Fridays (between 10:00am and 6:00pm) or Saturdays (between 10:00am and 1:00pm). Please contact the parish office at (386) 427-4530.

Non-local couples must complete their marriage preparation with their home parish. All necessary forms and proof of preparation should be mailed to our parish office in a timely manner.

All couples must be in contact with Janet Hogan, our Marriage Coordinator, to schedule a wedding rehearsal. Please call the parish office for contact information.

All couples will meet with our pastor, Fr. Patrick, prior to the wedding date. Please contact the parish office to arrange a meeting!
