Weddings

Fr. Bradley is available to speak with couples about scheduling a wedding ceremony at St. George’s.

Christian marriage is a public acknowledgement of the spiritual union of two persons. The ceremony is usually observed in the church, in the presence of family and guests, and is best celebrated in the context of Holy Communion or Mass. At least six months’ notice is necessary in order to arrange for the premarital counseling and to comply with the Canons of the Episcopal Church. At least one of the persons to be married must be a baptized Christian and the parties must also be in compliance with the laws of New Hampshire.

Fr. Bradley can be reached at 603-868-2785 or rectorstg@comcast.net
