The Church's Laws Concerning Holy Matrimony

The Church's Laws Concerning Holy Matrimony

The Episcopal Church requires that at least one of the parties be a baptized Christian, that the ceremony be attested to by at least two witnesses, and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church.

At All Souls, it is customary that at least one of the parties be a member in good standing of this parish, or the son, daughter, or parent of a member in good standing, or be in the process of becoming a member of the parish (through baptism, transfer of membership letter, reaffirmation of faith or reception from the Roman Catholic Church). All weddings, holy unions and blessings are scheduled at the discretion of the rector.
