Marriage

“Marriage is a relationship between a woman and a man who join together in love and who seek mutual growth and unity in that love. That relationship is a spiritual one in which you take a personal responsibility for your partners' growth and well being. It is also a relationship of a total and shared commitment in which the partners care for each other in good times and bad. We believe that marriage is the gift of God for the support and growth of both partners as they give and receive love in their own relationship and in the world. “  (The Book of Alternative Services)

This statement from the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island summarizes our current understanding of the definition of Marriage and the commitment of faith required by couples seeking Marriage within the Anglican Church.

Because, in the words of the Marriage service; “It is a way of life that all should reverence, and none should lightly undertake.” (BAS p. 542) we encourage you to contact our Cathedral Office as one of the first steps in planning your wedding. We require a minimum of 90 days notice before scheduling a wedding at the Cathedral. Marriage in the Anglican Church is governed by National Church policies as well as local Diocesan policies and Nova Scotia Provincial law, so it is important that you discuss your intentions and plans before making firm commitments about other aspects of your anticipated wedding.

We will be pleased to help you in preparing to celebrate this important day in your lives.

The Eucharist/Holy Communion

“...on the night he was handed over to suffering and death, [Jesus] took bread and gave you thanks, saying, “Take, and eat: this is my body which is broken for you.”  In the same way he took the cup, saying, “This is my blood which is shed for you.  When you do this, you do it in memory of me.”  (B.A.S. p. 197)

Our Anglican tradition is one rooted in a liturgical expression of the Eucharist.  It is in the Eucharist that we gather to be nurtured as a community, in which we are renewed in our baptismal covenant, where we experience reconciliation with God, and are then challenged and empowered by the Spirit to go forth into the world.

Our principal Sunday services at the Cathedral are celebrations of the Eucharist. Our current pattern includes a Book of Common Prayer (B.C.P.) service with a brief homily and no music at 8 am; a service from the Book of Alternative Services (B.A.S.) with music, in a relaxed setting gathered around the font, at 9 am; and a more traditional choral Eucharist at 10:30 am. This service integrates the whole community with a children’s talk, Sunday school, adult sermon, choir and a variety of musical settings for the Eucharist. Services of the Eucharist are also held during weekdays at the Cathedral.

The Anglican Church welcomes all those who are baptized Christians (regardless of age) to share in receiving the bread and wine of the Eucharist. Those who prefer may receive the bread only, or come forward to receive a blessing.
