Marriage is the union of two people who are committed to one another in their heart, body and mind. When a couple is considering marriage, there is a time required for counseling and preparation.
Marriage is a lifelong commitment. This means that careful consideration on the part of the couple about life expectations, faith, trust, careers should be made.
In cases where one or both of the parties have been previously married, the Bishop will be informed, and this should be taken into consideration in the planning of the wedding.
At Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, we can begin with a conversation to discuss what it means to receive the blessing of marriage and union before God and community.
