Holy Matrimony at The Church of the Holy Trinity
The attached brochure has been designed to offer an opportunity for you to understand the wedding ceremony as it takes place at The Church of the Holy Trinity. As is stated in the Book of Common Prayer, “Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which the man and woman enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows.”
In this very special time, we are honored to perform this vital service in the lives of two people as they become one. The intention of the information here is to answer all the possible questions that can come up but we realize that there may be more. After you have completely read through the material, there will be time for additional questions that you may have. If you decide that Holy Trinity may be the place for your wedding, an appointment can be made with the Rector in order to get the process of planning started.
There are a number of guidelines to this process and it may seem daunting. In our awareness of the importance of this crucial time in the life of two people, we want to make sure that there is a very clear understanding of expectations to facilitate better planning and to eliminate any confusion in the process. It is not our attempt to complicate it is more our intention to foster comfort and confidence in the ceremony itself. No questions are foolish and we hope that we create an environment that will facilitate and encourage them.
Holy Trinity does not charge for weddings with the only exception to that being that the organist will charge a fee. As you read through this brochure, please keep that in mind. There will be many people here at the church that will take part in the preparation. They consider this to be a ministry and as such we do not charge.
