Urgent search for an anglican Minister

Recommended Posts

I am posting this in a desperate search to find an Anglican Minister who is willing to bless our marriage on the 2nd of June this year.  Myself and my fiance live in a small village called Marchal in the Cantal department, just near the crossroads of Puy de Dome and Correze.  As we live in a predominantly Catholic area we are struggling to find an Anglican Minister who will perform a marriage blessing for us after our civil ceremony.  We have contacted our Cure to see if he would be willing to give us a Benediction, however, he has refused but very kindly offered us the Church in our village to use should we be able to find an Anglican Minister.  We have followed up many leads on Churches and our closest is an American church in Clermont Ferrand, but after waiting for a response we have been informed that the minister will be out of town on the 2nd of June and therefore unable to help.  If anyone knows anyone or has any information for us we would be extremely grateful.  It really would mean a lot for us to have our marriage blessed in church.

Thank you for your time.

Angela's link is a good one, but as the Diocese of Europe website lists only clergy who are appointed to chaplaincies, it might be worth contacting the diocesan office to see if there are any retired clergy in the area who might be able to help.

I am a Anglican Priest. I have taken early retirement and come to live here, but I haven't got around for permission to officiate yet.

If I think of  someone today I will get back to you. Best wishes Mooky

Hello,

I just wanted to say thanks for all your help and advice.  We have since contacted various churches around France, however, as it is now approaching 2 weeks till we get married, all were unable to help.  So we have since contacted our community priest again and he has agreed to bless our marriage for us as we really have no other option.  So we will now be having a service with all our friends and family on our wedding day, we are both really happy.

Thanks again.

Amelia
