Holy Baptism is one of the Church's seven Sacraments. The Sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace.
The Sacraments are the most holy of all the church's services and celebrations.
Holy Matrimony is the sacrament of Christian marriage, in which two enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows.
If you would like to inquire about celebrating the sacrament of Holy Matrimony at Grace-St. Luke's, the first point of contact is Parish Administrator & Assistant to the Rector, Linda Stine (901-252-6324, lstine [at] gracestlukes [dot] org) who can both explore potential available dates and provide you with Grace-St. Luke's Marriage Guidelines.
Members and non-members may exchange vows at Grace-St. Luke's, according to certain criteria, and couples must meet with the rector before approval and a wedding date may be announced. Couples must consult with the rector no later 90 days before the desired ceremony date (except for extreme pastoral emergencies), and ceremonies may not be scheduled for more than one year from the desired date. Premarital counseling is required of all couples.
Godspeed on your marriage journey and please contact us to explore how we might support you.
