Scripture readings and ceremony information

READINGS FOR THE NUPTIAL MASS OR CEREMONY

You need to choose one reading from the Old Testament and the New Testament. Readers for the wedding liturgy will read from the Lectionary, not from typewritten sheets.
Readers are asked to be present at the wedding rehearsal so that there may be practice. If this is not possible, they must see the priest twenty minutes prior to the wedding.
