As Marriage is a call from God and a response from two people, a man and a woman,
who promise to build, with the help of divine grace, a lifelong, intimate and Sacramental
partnership of love and life. Immaculate Conception Church endeavors to support the couple with marriage preparation and an inspirational ceremony; one that is spiritual, beautiful and memorable.
The requirements of the Catholic Church, the Diocese of Honolulu and Immaculate Conception Church need to be followed. Please view the guidelines of the Diocese of Honolulu.
The Catholic priest who assists the couple in marriage preparation will be responsible
for all pre-marriage paperwork.
Weddings may be held Monday through Saturdays (except Holy Saturday) and are scheduled between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm. Weddings are not permitted on Sundays.
Please contact the church office at least six (6) months prior to the date of your wedding
to schedule an initial meeting with our pastor, Father Nick Brown. He will share with you
the requirements to be met and the paperwork required. The phone number for the
Church office is (808) 681-3701. All documents related to the marriage must be
received by Immaculate Conception Church at least two months before the ceremony.
The priest/deacon will explain the options and provide suggestions for the
prayers and the readings for the ceremony. Please contact them through the church office
at (808) 681-3701 for more information. They will schedule the wedding rehearsal which
is usually done before 3 pm or after 6 pm. It is very important that the rehearsal start on
time, as it takes approximately one hour. The complete wedding party including parents,
readers, ushers and sponsors should attend.
The music selected for you wedding should reflect and enhance the religious
celebration of the service; creating an atmosphere of prayer and joy. Our Music Director
will work with you and musicians and cantors are available for hire..
