Marriage

Wedding Requests must be submitted at least six months before the desired wedding date. Please contact the parish office at 208-342-3511 or [email protected] for possible openings. The calendar changes often; dates are only scheduled and confirmed once all documentation and non-refundable down payment are received AND the interested parties have met with the Pastoral Associate to discuss Cathedral dates and assign clergy.

Planning Your Wedding: 

1. Complete a Wedding Request Form. Questions about this form may be directed to the Event Coordinator at the Parish Office: 208-342-3511 x113 (Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or email [email protected].

2. Contact us at [email protected] to initiate the planning process and to plan for a priest or deacon to help you with marriage preparation. Make an appointment to meet with a pastoral staff member (either a Pastoral Associate or Deacon). This appointment will review the process of getting married in our church and the initial down payment (see fees below) will be due to confirm your date and time. If you cancel your wedding for any reason the down payment is non-refundable.

3. Review and sign Wedding Guidelines
