Cathedral Use & Weddings

photo Jared & JustineCouples occasionally inquire about celebrating their wedding at Bryn Athyn Cathedral. Members of the Bryn Athyn Church or the New Church faith are welcome to hold their marriage ceremony in Bryn Athyn Cathedral. The service must be officiated by a minister from the New Church clergy. The Cathedral is a wonderful and popular location for a wedding. It serves as the site for many weddings, funerals, baptisms and church services within the Bryn Athyn congregation.

New Church members or those interested in making the New Church their faith-of-choice are welcome to pursue scheduling their wedding at the Cathedral. What we ask is that couples, optimally, consider baptism in the New Church before scheduling a wedding at  Bryn Athyn Cathedral. Our expectations are that couples be sincerely interested in our faith, and that they be willing to participate in the various worship services and programs in the Bryn Athyn congregation.

Members may contact Monica Gruber ( to select a mutually acceptable date and time and to learn more about planning a wedding at the Bryn Athyn Cathedral.

For those who are not yet members of the New Church, but interested in learning more, please contact our Pastor’s Office at 215-947-6225 x 207 or via email, Rev. Erik Buss.

The Bryn Athyn congregation offers many wonderful things to young couples – a faith community, New Church based private schools, numerous religious and community programs. If you are interested, let us know!
