Frequently Asked Questions
Who may be married at Incarnation?
We believe Christian marriage to be a sign of Christ’s love to a sinful and broken world. It is intended by God for the mutual joy of the couple, the help they give to one another in prosperity and adversity, and, when it is God’s will, for the procreation of children and their nurture in the knowledge and love of our Lord. For this reason it is necessary that at least one of you be a baptized Christian and that you intend to be active participants in some Christian community. Normally anyone being married at Incarnation will have some connection to this parish. Those who are not members are still invited to contact one of the clergy to discuss their hopes and our expectations.
