Wedding liturgy planning worksheet - Catholic nuptial Mass

This is an order-of-service template for a Catholic nuptial Mass wedding ceremony.

The worksheet has one line for each item that typically occurs in a wedding liturgy, and space to record the specific details:  what readings and hymns, who is doing them, what key the music is in.   It can be used along side other wedding planning advice sites/guidelines, to record the specific choices that you make for your ceremony.

About this template

This wedding Mass planning template is laid out so that everything fits on one page, and every major item is listed. This lets anyone can see at a glance what happens when. It is is particularly intended for:
  • The bride and groom, and whoever is helping them to plan the liturgical details of their wedding service
  • Musicians who need to know what they need to play / sing, and when it occurs in the service
  • Audio visual and other technical people, who need to know what equipment is needed where and when
  • Photographers, who want to know exactly which parts of the service pictures are needed in.

And it may be useful for other people who have a role in the service but are nervous about knowing exactly when they need to carry it out etc.

The listing is based on a standard order of service for a nuptial (ie wedding) published by the United States Catholic Bishops.  You must also consult your own celebrant about what is required and / or possible in your parish / diocese / country, as there may be variations and local practises to take into account.

You can change  the template to suit your needs - the Microsoft Word version is for this, while the PDF version will always print nicely.

Make a copy of the template by right-clicking on these icons, and choosing the option (eg save target as, save file as) to save the file into your computer.
