Our Hope for You
It is the hope and prayer of our church members and staff that your experience of the Celebration and Blessing of Christian Marriage will be a deeply personal and meaningful one that will serve as the basis of a strong and fulfilling marriage.
St. Thomas’ Church considers it a holy privilege to be part of the celebration of marriage. The sacrament of Holy Marriage is a solemn and public covenant made in the presence of God. In the Episcopal Church it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian, and that the marriage conform the the laws of the State and the canons of the Church.
The priest officiating at the wedding does so as a part of the authority granted him/her by the Church in ordination, pronouncing the nuptial blessing, and presiding at the Holy Eucharist. Every effort is made to assist marrying couples and implementing a service that is personal and intimate, yet consistence with the liturgy authorized by the Book of Common Prayer.
