Wedding Guidelines

The national canons of the Episcopal Church require that at least one member of the couple seeking to be married be a baptized Christian. The engaged couple must participate in pre-marital meetings with the parish priest. Divorced persons may remarry in the Episcopal Church. The parish priest must first obtain permission from The Episcopal Bishop of Long Island to perform the marriage; this consists of a simple process that involves responding to some questions in writing which the priest submits to the bishop along with proof of divorce.

You do not need to be a member of Trinity to be married here. Please know that you are welcomed to join us for Sunday worship at any time or participate in any activities as you feel inspired. You do not need to be a resident of Long Island (or even of the United States) to be married here. As we are an Episcopal Church, we use the Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage in the Book of Common Prayer as the form for marriage ceremony. You have the option to celebrate the marriage ceremony with our without the celebration of the Eucharist.  Below is the link for the marriage service in the current 1979 Book of Common Prayer (BCP).
