  • At least one of the couple to be married must be a baptized Christian.
  • The couple must attend pre-marital counseling with a Priest at St. Mary’s or show documentation of such counseling from another Episcopal church.
  • We are delighted to marry couples that are not members of any local church on the condition that they commit themselves to regular attendance and instructions during the period of their pre-marital counseling. The Rector will discuss your plans for pre-marital counseling and church attendance in your own community.
  • Candidates who have been married and divorced will be asked to discuss the former marriage, and the candidate must also supply a copy of the final decree of dissolution. A letter and copy of the decree will become part of a file that will be sent to the Bishop of the Diocese of Northern California, whose consent is required for the divorced persons to be married by a Priest of the Diocese.
