Scheduling a Wedding in 2020 or 2021?

St. Andrew’s is getting a new pipe organ. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic construction and instillation of the instrument has been delayed.

We now anticipate work in the church to prepare for the instrument to commence in the fall of 2020 and instillation of the organ to be completed sometime in mid-2021. We may be able to schedule weddings during this time, but the church interior will look like a construction site.

Additionally, due to current state and diocesan Covid restrictions only ten people are allowed in the church for any service at this time. We will provide updates as a more precise construction timeline becomes available and as Covid restrictions on the use of the church change.

We look forward to the time when we can offer our sanctuary for celebrations accompanied with music from our new pipe organ. If you have any further questions regarding planning a wedding, please contact the Parish Administrator, Kathy McPherson.

Getting Married at St. Andrew's

Our life with God is expressed in relationships of commitment and faithfulness, which includes heterosexual as well as same-sex couples. It is the Church’s joy to celebrate these relationships as signs of God’s love, to pray for God’s grace to support couples in their life together, and to join with these couples in our shared witness to the gospel in the world.

Marriage Licenses

Please bring your marriage license to Kathy McPherson in the parish office no later than the Wednesday before the wedding along with the final payment for fees.

  • You must have a Michigan issued marriage license
  • Out-of-state residents must have a Washtenaw County issued marriage license

More information regarding requirements/how to obtain a license in Washtenaw County can be found at washtenaw.org.
