Marriage is one of the most sacred, beautiful and joyful of all church ceremonies. It celebrates God’s uniting of two persons in holy matrimony and his blessing on their marriage by his sustaining presence. The Christian marriage ceremony is a service of worship before God. All of the preparations we will make together are undertaken in light of that fact. The marriage covenant is a significant event in the life of the church as well as in the lives of the two people who are promising to share their lives together. For that reason, it is important that your special day be as well-organized as possible and that the wedding meet both your expectations and the expectations of the church.
Please note: There are fees involved for marriages being held at SMAC. Please contact the parish office for details.
All persons wishing to be married in St. Matthew’s should contact the Clergy before making final plans. Marriage application forms can also be obtained from them or from the parish office.
