Weddings

rings

The love between two people becoming one is evidence of God’s self-giving love for all. St. John’s joyfully celebrates couples who enter into a life-long unions and desire the blessing of God and the support of the Church to help them fulfill the vows that they make. As part of this commitment, it is expected that couples will be or become members of a church community.

Preparation

Couples thinking about celebrating their marriage at St. John’s should meet with our priest as a first step before plans for the ceremony are made. Should either member of the couple be divorced, divorce papers must be submitted for review at the time of the request. A minimum of three months is required to prepare for the ceremony. Couples attend three pre-marital meetings followed by a rehearsal. It is expected that couples will regularly participate in Sunday worship as part of their preparation.
