Marriage at St. James
Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between a man and a
woman in the presence of God. In the Episcopal Church it is required that
one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the
ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage
conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church.
(Book of Common Prayer 1979, p 442)
In the State of Vermont, it is lawful for same gender couple to be married.
Here at St. James we recognize that love between two persons is a gift from God
and therefore we joyfully celebrate and bless the covenant made between two
people regardless of sexual orientation.
