“Give them wisdom and devotion in the ordering of their common life, that each may be to the other a strength in need, a counselor in perplexity, a comfort in sorrow, and a companion in joy.”
— The Book of Common Prayer, p 429

A Christian marriage is a unique and special relationship, and your wedding day is a joyful and special occasion for us as well as for you. Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between two people in the presence of God. In the Episcopal Church it is required that at least one of the people must be a baptized Christian, that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses, and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church.  Saint Philip’s is happy to celebrate and solemnize the marriages of same-gender couples, using rites authorized by General Convention 2015, as approved by our Bishop and in accordance with Arizona law.
