CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE is a solemn and public covenant in the presence of God. The Episcopal Church requires that at least one of the parties to be married 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 or commonwealth and the canons of the Episcopal Church. Additionally it is required that the officiating clergy be given at least 30 days’ advance notice (60 days if one of the parties has been divorced). It is recommended that couples contact the clergy six months in advance of the wedding.
