What to Expect:
Traditional Latin Mass
The wedding ceremony will be performed as the prelude to High Mass of the Roman rite, where the betrothed will receive Holy Communion for the first time as Husband and Wife. The traditional celebration will be sung by the priest in Latin, and will be accentuated by live music.
The Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) follows an ancient rubric many are unfamilliar with. Click here for a follow-along guide to the TLM, including side-by-side Latin and English translations, and a guide for when to stand, sit and kneel. Women are encouraged to wear a white veil or mantilla.
Please only receive Holy Communion if you are a practicing Catholic, having received the sacrament of Confession within the past year, accepting all the dogmas of the Church. Learn more about Holy Communion here!

Gentlemen are expected to don formal attire (suits); ladies are expected to wear either a dress or a pantsuit.
