OLA Parish Marikina: Wedding Requirements, Packages, Schedules and Fees

Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish is located at Sta. Elena, Marikina City. This was where my husband and I received the sacrament of matrimony as officiated by Fr. Gerry Evarola. Many memories and firsts of my childhood years were celebrated in the four corners of this church since I was a gradeschool student of Marikina Catholic School, that’s why I was very grateful that my husband and his family agreed to have our wedding here. Of course, I wanted my wedding to take place in the church which has significance to us or either to one of us. And, with God’s grace everything fell into place and my simple wish was granted.

And just in time, I also asked for their copy of wedding requirements so that I can share it with my readers. To all those who are planning their wedding, I hope this blog post will be of great help in your preparations.

  1. Hi Sis! I have question about sa marriage contract. Sa OLA din kami kinasal pero di pa namin nakuha yung marriage contract namin, mag 2months na. Sa munisipyo ba kukunin or sa church na mismo? nabusy kasi kami sa work. Thanks for answering, nababother na kasi ako. Di ko mapuntahan yung church agad kasi medyo malayo bahay namin.

  2. Hi what is the main reason why the church does not allow red carpet on wedding ceremony except for the answer of “It’s the rule”? We reserved the date for coming June 2017 but I’m dissatisfied without it and their reasoning is hard to accept.

  3. Hi po. Question lang po sana. Ldr po kase kami ng fiancè ko at 1month lang ang leave nya. If ever na makuha nmen ung marriage license in 2 weeks which is also 2weeks away from the wedding day, will it be alright? Kasi diba ang Banns parang 2-3weeks na ipopost sa church
