Main Line Unitarian Church Offers Free Same-Sex Weddings

on .

MLUCMarriageEqualityRev. Morgan McLean and the entire congregation of Main Line Unitarian Church (MLUC) are celebrating the recent decision to strike down Pennsylvania’s ban on same-sex marriage.

To show her support of this landmark ruling, Rev. McLean has offered to officiate same-sex weddings free of charge on three upcoming dates: Sunday, May 25 (1:00 – 5:00 p.m.), Monday, May 26 (12:00 – 3:00 p.m.), and Saturday, May 31 (4:00 – 7:00 p.m.).

“I know I speak for everyone at Main Line Unitarian Church when I say how thrilled we are as a congregation that Pennsylvania can now legally recognize what we’ve all known for a long time, that love is love,” Rev. McLean stated enthusiastically. “This is a small way for us at MLUC to stand on the side of love and celebrate with our lesbian and gay sisters and brothers.”

Couples will need a marriage license, and the church will provide flowers, cake, and a photographer. Interested parties can call the church at 610-688-8332 to reserve a time for their ceremony.

MLUC is a designated Welcoming Congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association, and Rev. McLean officiated several weddings in August 2013 before the issuing of same-sex marriage licenses in Montgomery County was halted.

If any couple, same or opposite sex, wishes to schedule a wedding at Main Line Unitarian Church on another date, they are welcome to contact the church and set up a time of their choosing.
