Church Formalities to Get Married in Goa

 Church Formalities for Wedding in Goa
The first thing to do, once you get engaged is to keep in mind that apart from all the exciting reception knitty-gritties you need to first ensure that the following are taken care of:
Marriage Preparation Programme

A compulsory course must be attended by the bride and the groom to be, either in Konkani or in English. It is either a two or three days course that comprises of lectures to educate the young couple who are to enter in familiy life. It wont be wise for you to wait for the church readings to get over before you proceed with the wedding reception details specially if your running out of time.

Its a two year validity course and hence can be done well in advance. Courses are conducted in Panjim and Margao. The course is conducted by the Diocesan Family Service Centre. In Panjim it is held at Carital Holiday Home, ST. INEZ, organised by the department of marriage formation Diocesan Family Service Centre, Archdiocese of Goa & Daman.

Registration of Marriage

This has to be done at the sub-registrar's office in the groom's taluka with basic documents including the couples birth and residence certificates, voters card or passport for identification and N.O.C.'s (No Objection Certificate's) from the court stating "no outside opposition" concerning both parties (i.e., previous marriages or any objection towards your marriage)

Approval from both Parishes

Each individual must have a good record with his/her respective parishes. Hence a one day or week's training with their respective parish priest's about the ethics and familiy values of christian life is required before the parish priest submits an N.O.C. (in the brides case) to the grooms church this is needed for the approval of the reading of the wedding banns which will be done in both churched three weeks prior to the day set by the couple.You will be required to give your conformation certificate to your concerned parish priest, incase you dont have one than your parish priest will give it to you on request if you have received conformation in the same church.
