Wedding Liturgy Planning
Prayers and Readings
As your wedding day draws near, it is important that you speak with the priest or deacon who will celebrate the liturgy to assist you in planning your wedding liturgy.
On this page are links to the Together for Life planning sheet and the various prayers and readings. The priest or deacon may have given you the Together for Life booklet at one of your meetings with him. The links on this page are the same as what you find in that booklet. The last page in the booklet is the planning sheet you will use. You can also obtain a copy by downloading from this site. Click here for the planning sheet.
In order to plan the liturgy, you first must decide if you will be having a Mass or a ceremony. If you are having a ceremony, you will notice on the planning sheet that certain prayers are omitted. In either case, the Together for Life booklet has broken the liturgy into a step by step format to make your planning easy.
As you see below, there is a letter/number combination for each part of the liturgy. When you select a particular prayer or reading, you simply record the letter and number on the planning sheet (sections K, L, and N). If it is easier for you, you can fill out this form online at http://togetherforlifeonline.com/selectionform/ and your selections will be emailed to you. When you have finished filling out the planning sheet, please make an appointment with the priest or deacon to review your selections.
In conjuction with planning the prayers and readings, you should also plan the music. Please click here to access the Music Planning Page.
