inform him who is your contact at Nativity. It is the responsibility of that priest or deacon to prepare you for your marriage, and to verify that your paperwork is submitted. We require that the paperwork and documentation be on file at our church at least 3 weeks prior to the wedding ceremony.

In the event that the celebrant of your choice is unable to assist you with the preparation and paperwork (if he is from out-of-town, for example), Deacon Dominick Peloso will facilitate the process. If that is your case, please contact him directly at (650) 269-6279.

If either party has been married previously, you must inform the celebrant immediately. No date may be set until the issue is resolved.
