Because the celebration and blessing of a marriage is an act of Christian worship, and because Christian marriage vows imply and express an active relationship between the couple and the Christian community, Christ Church has adopted specific guidelines and practices for weddings solemnized within our church's authority.
The Episcopal Church has also authorized rites for the blessing of same-sex unions. Those seeking this blessing also do so as part of the community of faith and follow similar guidelines.
The first step in planning a wedding or blessing at Christ Church is to call our church office (253-383-1569) to check for availability of dates and to make an appointment with the priest for an initial visit. The date for a ceremony will be reserved only after the initial appointment with the priest. To learn more about the guidelines for weddings and blessings, please speak to our clergy.
