Donations

  • The suggested donation for the Chapel is $200.
  • This does not cover the cost of musicians.

Musical Services

  • Since marriage is a sacrament, its music is considered sung prayer and should therefore be appropriate for a liturgy.
  • You may contact Mr. Gene Forish, Director of Music and Liturgy, at 412.396.6019 or forishe@duq.edu to obtain contact information for pastoral musicians.
  • You may also contact the Mary Pappert School of Music for contact information regarding qualified student musicians or hire qualified pastoral musicians by contacting the Mary Pappert School of Music at 412.396.6080.
  • You are also welcome to bring in qualified pastoral musicians to provide the music for your wedding.

Available Wedding Times

  • Weddings are on Saturdays at 11 AM, 1 PM, or 3 PM.
  • You can access the chapel 1/2 hour before the ceremony. The entire ceremony (including photographs) may only last 90 minutes after the scheduled start time of the wedding. For this reason, there is to be no receiving line.
