Arrange a Wedding
Congratulations on your engagement! Many weddings take place at St. Pat’s and we are happy that you are exploring the possibility of having your celebration here. In order to schedule a wedding, we ask that you contact Msgr. Steve Knox. You can reach him at 630-338-8001 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the wedding is scheduled, one of the priests will meet with you to get you started on your preparation and to give you information on the wedding ceremony. We’ll assist you all along the way!
Below is some information to guide you after you have scheduled the wedding date with Msgr. Steve Knox.
