According to our Christian faith, in marriage, each individual—both separately and together—transforms and matures in God’s presence and image. A wedding, then, is a sacred ritual that acknowledges and celebrates your desire to enter a lifelong relationship. Your marriage is a sacrament—an outward and visible sign of God’s grace bringing you together and nurturing your love.
WHO MAY BE MARRIED AT THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY?
The sacrament of marriage in the Episcopal Church is fully open to all couples, including same-gender couples. Members of the Church have first priority for dates and the use of our clergy. If you are not a member, you may contact the office and see the information below to determine whether your ceremony and our church are a good fit.
Weddings may be held anytime throughout the year except during Lent (the six weeks before Easter), during clergy vacations, and during most major secular holiday weekends. Parish events will also take priority over weddings. To schedule weddings, we require at least six months notice and we cannot schedule more than 18 months in advance. Premarital counseling is required of all couples.
GETTING STARTED ON YOUR WEDDING
Please also check date availability with the church office before sending any booking fee. We cannot hold dates until both application and booking fee are received. Please contact Mary Barrett at MBarrett@htrit.org or call 215-567-1267 for more information.
