Marriage Rites

Bishop of Atlanta Robert Wright has approved the use of trial liturgies for all couples asking to be married in the Diocese of Atlanta. A revised and expanded edition of marriage rites for all couples who wish to be married in The Episcopal Church has been released by Church Publishing, Inc. Liturgical Resources 1: I Will Bless You and You Will Be a Blessing, which has been authorized for trial use in Episcopal Church congregations beginning on the First Sunday in Advent 2015. The new volume is a result of the 2012 General Convention commendation of the resource.
