 DESCRIPTION

Take advantage of the valuable educational mission opportunity that occurs at Weddings, when usually numerous visitors are present, many of whom might be attending an Orthodox church for the first time. Teach these visitors, and teach the Orthodox people about their own Faith, by distributing this attractive pamphlet that explains the meaning of the Orthodox Sacrament (Mystery) of Holy Matrimony. These pamphlets can also be used in parish education programs for teens and adults.

This pamphlet "translates" the Church's teachings and practices by explaining them in a way that ordinary people can understand, divided into sections. The first section presents the overall meaning of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, while the subsequent sections make clear the significance of each element of the rites that comprise the Divine Service. 
SECTIONS:
The Sacrament of Holy Matrimony
The Service of Betrothal
