Small teams of Wedding Assistants assist our parish Wedding Directors at each rehearsal and wedding held at Saint Brigid to ensure that each wedding is truly a wonderful celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage. Requirements: A love of weddings and the sacrament of Marriage, a warm and caring attitude, and a sincere willingness to be helpful.
Time: One hour for rehearsal which is usually on a Friday evening and two and a half hours on a Saturday. Wedding Assistants receive a schedule of weddings and sign up based on their availability. There is no minimum requirement on the number of weddings you must do. Rehearsals are normally at 6:00 pm, 6:45 pm and 7:30 pm depending on the number of weddings. Weddings are scheduled for 11:00 am, 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
