The Cathedral of the Assumption provides a beautiful space for the wedding liturgies of parishioners and other members of parishes in the Archdiocese. Weddings are scheduled on Friday evenings at 7:00 p.m., Saturday mornings at 11:00 a.m. or Saturday afternoons at 2:30 p.m. At least one member of the wedding party, either bride or groom, must be a practicing Roman Catholic for the wedding to take place at the Cathedral of the Assumption.
The services provided for all weddings include
- Use of the worship space
- Altar Server
- Wedding Assistant
The Cathedral staff assists those preparing to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony by offering a Wedding Workshop two times per year. These liturgy-planning sessions help the couple with music selection and ceremony planning.
The seriousness of marriage has led the Catholic Church to do everything possible to ensure that couples achieve the sacramental marriage to which Christ calls them. Thus the Church has made formal marriage preparation a requirement before there can be a Catholic wedding. The Archdiocese of Louisville requires at least a 6-month preparation period for couples seeking the Sacrament of Matrimony. Along with the assistance from the priest or deacon, who will officiate your wedding, couples are required to complete a premarital inventory and participate in a marriage preparation program.
Wedding Workshop Dates
All workshops are held in the Cathedral sanctuary from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.
