We have general information and fees for you in downloadable leaflets, called “Customaries” for the service. These leaflets are designed to give you background information, based on the customary or usual practices, of the Book of Common Prayer, the Episcopal Church, and the tradition here at the Church of the Redeemer. We encourage you to read the appropriate leaflet before calling the office (610-525-2486) to arrange your service.
