Marriage

At the 78th General Convention, which met in Salt Lake City from June 25 through July 3, 2015, two resolutions were adopted regarding marriage and blessing liturgies. Two new rites are authorized for trial use beginning on the first Sunday of Advent (November 29) 2015. They are The Witnessing and Blessing of a Marriage, and The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage 2.

These rites are available for purchase from Church Publishing Inc. in a single volume titled “Liturgical Resources I Revised and Expanded:  I Will Bless You and You Will Be A Blessing.”

The rites as adopted by General Convention are available in pdf format online:

The Witnessing and Blessing of a Marriage

The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage 2

They are also available in a Word document online from the General Convention Office.

Learn more about the use of these rites as approved by Bishop Sean Rowe by reading “The Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania & The Diocese of Bethlehem Policy on Marriage and Blessing Liturgies of The Episcopal Church.”
