 Weddings

 

Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant in the presence of God.  In the Episcopal Church it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church.
