"The Sacrament of Marriage is a covenant, which is more than a contract. Covenant always expresses a relationship between persons. The marriage covenant refers to the relationship between the husband and wife, a permanent union of persons capable of knowing and loving each other and God" (USCCB, 2014).
Please contact the parish center (847) 824-2026 to begin the process for marriage at St. Stephen. **
** From initial contact to Marriage Ceremony, a time period of at least 6 months is recommended.
