Declaration of Intention

Marriage at St. Margaret’s requires that the couple sign the Declaration of Intention (full text below). You can download it here.

We understand the teaching of the church that God’s purpose for our marriage is for our mutual joy, for the help and comfort we will give to each other in prosperity and adversity, and, when it is God’s will, for the gift and heritage of children and their nurture in the knowledge and love of God. We also understand that our marriage is to be unconditional, mutual, exclusive, faithful, and lifelong, and we engage to make the utmost effort to accept these gifts and fulfill these duties, with the help of God and the support of our community.

Revised by Resolution A036 at the 2015 General Convention of the Episcopal Church.
