Marriage equality has arrived! Contrary to popular understanding, we know that many Black pastors are open to celebrating weddings. Some have been doing so already. For others, it will be their first time, and they will have some questions. Please share Many Voices’ 5 keys to preparing couples and clergy for marriage ceremonies.

And there's more! As you create your service, check out all the resources this website has: Complete Service of Christian Marriage, Prayer for Clergy, Greetings, Scripture Readings, Statement of Intention, Vows, Blessing of Families, Readings, Blessing and Exchange of Rings/Symbols. To view any of these, click on the resources tab above, open Rituals & Blessings and choose Weddings/Commitments.
