Operation I Do

St. Thomas More Church has begun sign ups for this year’s Operation I Do.

This parish ministry is offered to couples who have been living together as husbands and wives under common law or civil law marriages but have not been married in the church. The parish aids in preparing the required paperwork, preparation guidance, and a free wedding at the church.

This year’s Operation I Do wedding date is on June 24, 2017, the Saturday immediately following the feast day of our patron St. Thomas More.

To sign up or receive additional information, please call the church office at (415) 452-9634 or Joe Espinueva at (650) 892-7184. Or click here to send an email message (Please put “Operation I Do” in the subject line).
