Parish Sacraments. Family Sacraments.

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 at Grace-St. Luke's

Holy Matrimony is 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 step is to request a Guide to the Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage from the church office at 901-272-7425. According to canon law, a couple must consult the clergy at least 30 days prior to the proposed wedding date (90 days if either party is divorced, when the bishop's approval is required). Premarital counseling is required of all couples seeking the Sacrament of Marriage. 

Making plans much further in advance is strongly advised, in order to ensure scheduling flexibility.

You can explore the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony in the Book of Common Prayer, pages 422-432.
