Weddings & Funerals
“Love. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”
– 1 Corinthians 13:7-8
Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which any two people enter into a life-long union, making their vows in a solemn and public covenant before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows. In the Episcopal Church, it is required that one, at least, of the parties be a baptized Christian.

Planning funeral liturgy is often avoided until the occasion is upon us. We invite you to look at this process as the joyful work of planning the celebration of life. The Book of Common Prayer reminds us that the funeral is an Easter liturgy, finding its meaning in Christ’s resurrection and is characterized by joy, in the certainty that “neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
A team of pastoral ministers support bereaved family members during funerals and memorial services. They work to coordinate reception plans with the family and the church during this sensitive time. To contact us for further information about funeral services and reception, click here.
