Congratulations on your engagement! St. John’s celebrates the sacrament of marriage and covenant blessing for members as well as for potential members of the parish, and for those who are children of members. Potential members are people who will live in the St. Paul, MN area and are in the process of becoming a member of St. John’s. Neither person is required to be an Episcopalian while the ceremony is being planned, but at least one of the couple must be a baptized Christian. We do not rent out our space for non-member ceremonies.
If you are planning a wedding or covenant blessing, the first step is to speak to one of the clergy: The Reverend Jered Weber-Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or The Reverend Kate Bradtmiller at email@example.com.
Next, complete a Wedding Reservation form (available from the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org). This also has information on wedding costs.
Finally, at least one month before the wedding, following consultation with clergy and the Music Director, please complete this Wedding Bulletin form (fillable PDF) and return it to the church office at email@example.com. For a list of suggested Scripture readings, click here.
Grant that the bonds of our common humanity, by which all your children are united one to another, and the living to the dead, may be so transformed by your grace, that your will may be done on earth as it is in heaven; where, O Father, with your Son, and the Holy Spirit, you live and reign in perfect unity, now and for ever. Amen.
—The Book of Common Prayer
