In the Christian church, marriage is a lifelong covenant between two people, made in the presence of God and the church, to love and care for one another. St. Saviour’s warmly invites all couples contemplating marriage to speak to the clergy. The Episcopal Church requires that at least one party be a baptized Christian and that couples engage in premarital counseling with the clergy. St. Saviour’s and the Diocese of Connecticut offer marriage for both heterosexual and same-sex couples.
