“Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between a man and a woman in the presence of God…intended by God for their mutual joy; for the help and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity; and when it is God’s will, for the procreation of children and their nurture in the knowledge and love of the Lord.” --Book of Common Prayer
Marriage is a sacred covenant between two persons seeking to live a life in the present leading toward the future and remembering the past that develops and nourishes a relationship in which two become one.
Weddings are only performed with the permission of the Priest. At least one of the parties must be a baptized Christian (of any denomination).
The decision for a marriage to take place at St. Michael’s is a collaborative one made by both the clergy and the couple. Dates should not be set or other plans made before consulting with the clergy.
For further information on weddings at St. Michael’s please call the parish office at 973-694-1026. The schedule of fees can be found here.
