As marriage is a call from God and a response from two people, a man and a woman, who promise to build, with the help of divine grace, a lifelong, intimate and Sacramental partnership of love and life. Holy Trinity Church endeavors to support the couple with marriage preparation and an inspirational ceremony; one that is spiritual, beautiful and memorable.
The requirements of the Catholic Church, the Diocese of Honolulu and Holy Trinity Church need to be followed. Please view the guidelines of the Diocese of Honolulu. The Catholic priest who assists the couple in marriage preparation will be responsible for all pre-marriage paperwork.
Weddings may be held Monday through Saturday (except Holy Saturday) and are scheduled between 9:00am and 2:00pm. Weddings are not permitted on Sundays. Please contact the church office at least six (6) months prior to the date of your wedding to schedule an initial meeting with our pastor, Father Mike Dalton. He will share with you the requirements to be met and the paperwork required. The phone number for the Church office is (808) 396-0551. All documents related to the marriage must be received by Holy Trinity Catholic Church at least two months before the ceremony.
Our wedding coordinator will explain the options and provide suggestions for the prayers and the readings for the ceremony. Please contact her through the church office at (808) 396-0551 for more information. She will schedule the wedding rehearsal which is usually done before 3 pm or after 6 pm. It is very important that the rehearsal start on time, as it takes approximately one hour. The complete wedding party including parents, readers, ushers and sponsors should attend.
The music selected for your wedding should reflect and enhance the religious celebration of the service; creating an atmosphere of prayer and joy. Our Music Director will work with you and musicians and cantors are available for hire.
