Weddings and Baptisms
Welcome to St. James Episcopal Church. Everyone at St. James wants to be as helpful as possible to you both as you plan the details of your wedding. Please read the following guidelines.
St. James Episcopal Church will do everything to make your wedding the beautiful occasion you desire. We look forward to getting to know you better, and especially if you are new to the area, we want to welcome you into the fellowship of our parish family.
All couples married at St. James receive a minimum of four pre-marital counseling sessions with the clergy. These are designed to assist you in preparing for Christian marriage, and to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the design of the service itself. You will also be asked to choose various readings and prayers, and assist in the overall design of the ceremony.

There is a fee of $500 for the use of the Church building, a $100 sexton fee, a $300 organist fee, and a $600 fee for the Priest. The church and clergy fees are waived for active members of St. James Episcopal Church. However, a donation can be made at your discretion to the Priest. St. James welcomes you without regard to your ability to pay and if our fees represent a hardship, please speak with clergy.
May your wedding be a day of great joy and celebration of the gift of love, which is Godís greatest gift to us.
