Officiating a wedding in the Episcopal Church in Western Oregon
Weddings performed by Episcopal priests who are not resident in this diocese must:
- Receive permission of the Bishop by emailing Christina Harutunyan, the Executive Assistant to the Bishop.
- Must assure that premarital sessions will take place prior to the wedding, and identify the person who will conduct these sessions
- Must submit this form confirming that both parties to be married are free to marry, i.e. if divorced they must present confirmation of divorce being final (dates, place of filing, name of ex-spouse)
- Identify an Episcopal congregation in this diocese at which the marriage will be recorded, and contact the clergy in charge to gain access to enter the marriage in that church registry
