There are many
locations around the island for you to have your Wedding Ceremony.
The island has two churches -- St. Paul's Episcopal Church
and Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church. In order to be
married in either parish, you must contact the church and make
arrangements with their clergy to be married.
Like most churches,
both St. Paul's and Mother of Sorrows require the couple to receive
counseling before the marriage can take place. You need to discuss
with the individual clergy what each require to have them marry you
within their particular church.

for more information about using the church facilities.
