  • “Crown them with glory and honor.” Marriage in the Orthodox Church

    Outreach and Evangelism Ministries

    April 15, 2021

    One of the sacraments of the Orthodox Church, the Marriage Service is rich with biblical imagery, prayer, and symbol. Because the ceremony is attended by Orthodox and non-Orthodox who may not be aware of the significance of the actions, this text has been prepared. It can be used as the basis for a program booklet distributed at the ceremony. There are a few spots for customization, such as including the names of the bride and the groom. The text can be edited easily to fit the program. Other possible additions to a program include the names of the bridal party, the family members, the clergy celebrating the ceremony, locations of receptions, and a personal note from the couple.
