Marriage Instructions and Customs
of Emmanuel Church, Great River, NY


Congratulations on your upcoming marriage. This is a very exciting time in your life and Emmanuel is pleased that you are considering a church wedding. Before deciding, please carefully read through this information packet regarding how the Episcopal Church at large and Emmanuel Church view marriage, and what the requirements are.

The Church views Holy Matrimony as a sacrament, which is an outward and visible sign of God's grace, because you are asking God's blessing upon your marriage. By being married in the church, you are also choosing to be part of a community of faith that will support and nurture you in your married life.

Please read the following policy carefully. If you wish to continue the discussion, please come to a Sunday service
(8:00am and 10:00am) and speak with the clergy.
