Do I need to be confirmed to get married in the Catholic Church?

No. While it is certainly a good thing to receive all of the Sacraments of Initiation (baptism, confirmation, eucharist) before a marriage, the only sacrament that is required for marriage in the Catholic Church is for either the man or the woman to be baptized in the Catholic Church.

However, there are many factors to consider when planning a marriage, so please remember that it is a very good idea to come to the parish office and meet with a priest at least six months before your wedding.

Do you have questions about the sacraments of the Catholic Church?
