Sacrament of Marriage

The Sacrament of Matrimony unites one man and one woman into an exclusive and lifelong bond which is strengthened by the grace of Jesus Christ and is guided by his commandments. 


If you are considering being married at St. Christopher Church, the Diocese of Manchester’s website on Marriage Preparation outlines the steps required. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops page on Planning a Catholic Wedding may also be helpful to you.


At the time of your engagement, the Church welcomes you to this sacrament in the spirit of Jesus who said: This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15:12-13)


We recommended that you contact the parish at least 6 months prior to your proposed wedding date.

Please contact the parish office at 603-882-0632 to discuss your plans for celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage at Saint Christopher Church.
