Wedding Guide

Wedding GuideCongratulations on your engagement! As you begin the preparation for the Sacrament of Matrimony, be assured of our prayers and support. The Wedding Customary for St. John’s has been carefully prepared to provide you with important information you will need regarding the use of the property and the conduct of the service. Please read it carefully and download your copy of the Wedding Customary. The first rule regarding the content of the Customary is please do not ask for exceptions from what is stated in the Customary.

Scheduling the Ceremony

The first step is to make an appointment with the Rector. No dates can be finalized without his approval. No date is finalized until after the second pre-marital session is complete. It must be understood that pre-marital sessions are designed in part to help the Rector determine your readiness for a lifelong committment and sacramental marriage. If he determines you still need more time before making such a commitment before God the wedding date is postponed.

Weddings can not be celebrated in the seasons of Advent or Lent.

The norm at St. John’s is that both the man and the woman must be baptized and be confirmed an Anglican. In the case of where there will be an interfaith marriage, where one member is a practicing faithful member of another faith tradition, please speak with the Rector about this. The term “interfaith” means “non-Christian,” such as being a practicing Jew.

You may contact the Parish Office or you may email directly the Rector to set up your first appointemnt with the Rector. To begin your premarital work you must be registered and an active supporting parishioner of St. John’s for a minimum of six month.

Please note: No arrangements for a wedding may be undertaken if there has been a previous marriage until Permission has been given by the Bishop’s Office and from the Rector.

“Rise up, O men of God. Tread where His feet have trod. As brothers of the Son of Man, rise up O men of God.” 🎶 Such a fitting anthem was sung today at Mass in honor of all the fathers, uncles, grandfathers, godfathers, and father-figures represented in our congregation. We are thankful for the way you all lead our families. May the prayer said over you this morning bless you in this upcoming year as you seek to follow Jesus more closely.We also are mindful of those missing a father, grandfather, or special male role model in their lives today.
