Your Wedding: Reading Selections

Please choose a First, Second, and Gospel Reading, and a Responsorial Psalm from the selections listed below. The readings are available to read on the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ website and are also linked below. At least one of your reading selections must specifically speak of marriage; these are marked with an asterisk. During Easter Time, the First Reading should be from the Book of Revelation (NT-14). Any questions you may have about selecting readings and petitions may be directed toward Susan Ratigan.
