Sacraments of Mission
Weddings are celebrated throughout the year, except during Lent (the 6 weeks prior to Easter). Marriage Preparation is to begin at least 6 months prior to the wedding. It is strongly recommended that a couple planning to be married at Our Lady of the Valley Parish contact the parish (625-4536) to schedule an initial interview with the Pastor before making any contractual arrangements with a facility for their reception. During the initial interview with a priest of the parish, the couple will be provided with all the necessary information needed for their preparation experience.
Holy Orders and Religious Life
Young men who are considering a call to being a priest (either as a Diocesan Priest or as a priest of a Religious Community) or as a Brother (in a Religious Community) are encouraged to contact the Vocations Department at the Diocese of Tucson at firstname.lastname@example.org
Young women who are considering a call to religious life as a Sister or Nun are encouraged to contact a priest of the parish for direction in the discernment process.
For both men and women, there is an online resource concerning the various Religious Orders and Communities of men and women: VocationMatch.com (EncuentroCatolica.org). This site allows seekers to match their personal profiles against the profiles of hundreds of participating Religious Orders and Communities.
