Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. Mark 10:9
Christian marriage is an extraordinary gift from God, in which a couple are called to live in the saving grace of Christ, enriched, guided, and sustained by the Holy Spirit, in communion with the community of the Church. The celebration and blessing of such a marriage is held in the church or the chapel. At least one of the couple being married must be a baptized Christian and a regular parishioner at St. James’.
Couples contemplating marriage should consult promptly with the clergy to allow time for premarital counseling and instruction. For those who have been divorced, permission of a bishop is required.
