Weddings at the Abbey
Weddings are normally celebrated in a parish church. Since the abbey basilica is not a parish, weddings in the basilica are governed by the policy of the Diocese of Charlotte. The following persons may request to celebrate their marriage in the basilica:
- Current members of the Belmont Abbey College community
- Alumni who have graduated from Belmont Abbey College
- Relatives of the monks of Belmont Abbey
- Persons who have a close and long-standing relationship with the monastic community
There are no weddings in the basilica between December 17 and January 1, and between Ash Wednesday and the Sunday after Easter.
Persons who are eligible to request to celebrate their marriage in the basilica should contact the Prior, Father Christopher, for further information using the email form below or by phone 704-461-6694.
