Marriage Crosses

Hang a meaningful symbol of the sacrament of marriage while supporting communities in need today

The Marriage Cross is used to adorn special vestments used for marriages, and it is sometimes used on the front or back of the priest chasuble, the deacon dalmatic or a stole. It frequently is depicted in stained glass windows. Some couples use it with wedding invitations, thank-you notes or table decorations.

Communities in need have created our range of DevTrade marriage crosses, and you can support them while having the cross as a prominent feature in your home to signify one of life's most meaningful events.

The cross represents Jesus, the centre of every Christian marriage

Jesus confirmed the goodness of marriage when he attended the Cana wedding feast (Jn 2:1-11). He taught about marriage, and explained that in the beginning, God made male and female, with the bride and the groom leaving their parents to join each other, become one flesh, and are not to be separated (Mt 19:4-6 and Mk 10:6-9).

The Church teaches that a Christian marriage's faithful covenantal love is “an efficacious sign of Christ’s presence” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1613). Likewise, the cross is a sign of Jesus’ love. Jesus explained, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” (Jn 15:13; see Rom 5:8).
