Classic Episcopal Wedding:
Are you looking for a traditional Episcopal wedding? Our ceremony follows the Canons of the Diocese of Pennsylvania and the Book of Common Prayer. You do not need to be Episcopalian to be married in this tradition, but one partner must be a baptized Christian, and couples are expected to attend 2-3 Sunday services prior to the wedding. You will meet with the rector for pre-marital counseling and to plan your ceremony. No weddings will be conducted during Lent. Episcopal weddings must be booked at least three months in advance (6 months for re-marriages). Couples married at Gloria Dei are also invited to renew their vows at our annual Valentine’s Day Service.
