MARRIAGES / WEDDINGS:
“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh”
(Genesis 2:24, Ephesians 5:31)
The Church of Ireland teaches that “marriage is in its purpose a union permanent and lifelong, for better or worse, till death do them part, of one man with one woman to the exclusion of all others on either side, for the procreation and nurture of children, for the hallowing and right direction of the natural instincts and affections, and for the mutual society, help and comfort which the one ought to have of the other, both in prosperity and adversity. “ (Canon 31).
Please contact the Priest who is available to assist couples who are intending to marry.
