Marriage is an everlasting, sacred vow made between a man and a woman, witnessed by God, the priest, and guests. It is a covenant relationship which the Church takes very seriously. The Archdiocese of Detroit requires that the bride or groom, or an immediate member of their family must be a registered parishioner of at least 6 months before they can reserve the church for a wedding. Once you have scheduled your wedding at St. Fabian, please see the Wedding Planning page and read the related documents, which will help you to plan your ceremony.
Convalidation of a Marriage Somtimes circumstances prevent a couple from being married in the Catholic Church. If those circumstances change, the marriage can be blessed–or “convalidated” at a later date. Attached is an explanation on what a convalidation of a marriage is, and when it can take place. See the document on the right for more information.
Annulment in the Catholic Church - Although the Catholic Church believes that the marriage vow is sacramental and permanent, there can be extenuating circumstances during the time of courtship or when the vows are exchanged that would nullify the sacramentality of the vows. In this case an annulment can be granted, and the person is free to be married again in the eyes of the Church. The attached document explains this in detail.
Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick takes place the first Friday of every month immediately following the 8:30am liturgy. Home/hospital visits can be arranged by calling the Parish Office.
