Weddings in Stella Maris Parish
If you live in the Stella Maris Parish, contact the Parish Office
on 07 5443 3488.
If you do not live in the Stella Maris Parish, make an appointment to meet the Priest in the parish where you live. He will start the interview process and liaise with Stella Maris Catholic Parish on your behalf.
Parish priests hold limited licences to perform some weddings on behalf of the Australian government. You need to have an interview with the priest, in the first instance, to ascertain if he can celebrate the civil part of your wedding.
If either of the couple have been married previously the priest may not be authorised by civil and church authorities to celebrate your wedding.
If both partners are Catholics, permission for weddings in places other than churches is unavailable.
For legal reasons, it is not possible for the parish to take a confirmed booking for a proposed wedding date until after your first interview with one of the priests.
