The sacrament of matrimony is a sacred union that binds a man and a woman together in the presence of God and their community. Just like many other Catholic churches, the parish offers the sacrament of matrimony to eligible couples who are eager to embark on their journey as husband and wife.
Barasoain Church holds a special place in the hearts of many, often referred to as the "San Agustin Church" of Bulacan. Much like the renowned San Agustin Church in Manila, Barasoain Church is a sought-after location for couples seeking to join in holy matrimony. The church's popularity extends far and wide, attracting couples not only from various regions of the Philippines but also from overseas, including returning expatriates who choose to celebrate their weddings within its hallowed walls.
This enduring appeal of Barasoain Church as a matrimonial venue underscores its significance as a place where couples come to profess their love and commitment to one another before God and their loved ones. The church's rich history and spiritual ambiance provide a truly remarkable backdrop for these joyous and sacred celebrations of love.
