Dean of Grace Cathedral issues statement on Proposition 8 ruling

Posted Jun 26, 2013

[Grace Cathedral press release] We at Grace Cathedral rejoice in today’s Supreme Court decisions concerning marriage equality. Now that marriage is a legal right afforded to all Californians equally, we are pleased to begin performing legal same-sex marriage ceremonies as soon as the state of California allows. As it has been our firm belief that all are loved by God equally, Grace Cathedral has performed same-sex blessing ceremonies since 1999 in the spirit of advocacy and example.

Grace Cathedral’s clergy and staff stand ready to welcome all committed couples to marry in the beautiful, sacred setting and Episcopal tradition of this cathedral. For more information on how to have your wedding at Grace Cathedral, visit

The Very Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw
