In the Christian faith, marriage is the covenant between two people entered into before God in the Church. It is never seen as a private event and, for that reason, weddings take place in the presence of Christian witnesses and invited guests in the presence of God in the St. David’s Chapel or Church.
Marriage is a sacramental institution, given to us by God for our mutual joy and is the visible sign of the mystery of the union of love between Christ and the Church – a sign of gracious, sacrificing, faithful love. It is a lifelong commitment by two people to love, honor and cherish one another through life in faithfulness and true godliness.
At least one person, bride or groom, must be a baptized Christian and should be an active contributing
member of St. David’s Church or the child of parents or grandparents who are active members of the church. When the date is set through our wedding coordinator, a clergy person will be assigned to provide spiritual direction and guidance in preparation for the marriage. There will be a minimum of three meetings between the bride, groom and priest. A person, or persons, who have previously been married and divorced must secure written permission to marry from the Bishop of the Diocese of Pennsylvania. The Bishop’s consent will be granted upon the recommendation of the Rector.
Please contact our Wedding Coordinator, by leaving a message in the office or calling 610-692-2979. She will assist you planning the ceremony and answer your questions about the preparation process.
