My Catholic Ceremony Program

Please note that I'm not including the veil, cord (lasso) & coin portion of the ceremony, this takes place during the Rite of Marriage.  My church is a little more lenient with musical selection as long as it's played instrumental.  Hope this helps anyone looking for a Catholic ceremony program.

Opening Prayer
Father, you have made the bond of marriage a holy mystery, a symbol of Christ’s love for his Church. Hear our prayers for Jennifer and David.  With faith in you and in each other they pledge their love today.  May their lives always bear witness to the reality of that love.  We ask you this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
 
Sit.
Liturgy of the Word
 First Reading
Genesis 1:26-28, 31a
 
A reading from the Book of Genesis
 
Then God said:
“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.   Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and the cattle, and over all the wild animals and all the creatures that crawl on the ground.” God created man in his image; in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  God blessed them, saying: “Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.  Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the living things that move on the earth.”  God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.
 
This is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
 

 

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 145:8-9, 10 & 15, 17-18
 
Leader: The Lord is compassionate toward all his works
All: The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
 
Leader: The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness.  The Lord is good to all and compassionate toward all his works.
All: The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
 
Leader: Let all your works give you thanks, O Lord, and let your faithful ones bless you.  The eyes of all look hopefully to you and you give them their food in due season.
All: The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
 
Leader: The Lord is just in all his ways, and holy in all his works.  The Lord is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.
All: The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
 
Second Reading
1 Corinthians 12:31-1-13:8a
 
A reading from the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians
 
Brothers and sisters:  Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.  But I shall show you a still more excellent way.  If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.  And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.  It is not jealous, is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.
 
The word of the Lord.   Thanks be to God.

Stand.
 
Alleluia Verse before the Gospel
1 John 4:12
 
If we love one another, God remains in us and his love is brought to perfection in us.
 
Gospel
Matthew 19:3-6
 
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.  Glory to you Lord.
(As we mark a cross on our forehead, mouth and chest we silently say, “May the word of God be on my mind, on my lips, and in my heart.”)
 
Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and testing him, saying. “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?” He said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?  So they are no longer two, but one flesh.  Therefore, what God has joined together, man must not separate.”
 
The Gospel of the Lord.   Praise to you Lord, Jesus Christ.

Unity Candle Ceremony
The lights, representing the faith, wisdom, and love they have received from their parents, are distinct, each burning alone. Jennifer and David will light the center candle to symbolize the union of their lives. As this one light burns undivided, so shall their love be one.
