“Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between a man and a woman in the presence of God. In the Episcopal Church it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 422).
Holy Matrimony, in the church, is a life-long union between a man and woman, who make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows (BCP, p. 861).
Grace and blessings to you as you prepare for your life together as a couple. We, the clergy of St. Peter’s, look forward to speaking with you in person about your hopes and plans.
