Cathedral Use & Weddings

photo Jared & JustineCouples occasionally inquire about celebrating their wedding at the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. Members of the Bryn Athyn Church or the New Church faith are welcome to hold their marriage ceremony in the 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 in the 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 India Rhodes ( to select a mutually acceptable date and time and to learn more about planning a wedding in the Cathedral.

For those who are not yet members of the New Church, but interested in learning more, please contact our Pastors Office at 215-947-6225 x207 or via email, Rev. Erik Buss or visit
