JFK-Jacqueline Bouvier Wedding Bells

JFK-Jacqueline Bouvier Wedding Bells

JFKWeddingJohn F Kennedy married Jacqueline Bouvier at Saint Mary’s Church in Newport, Rhode Island on September 12th, 1953. At the time Kennedy was a US Senator from Massachusetts. People come from all over the world knowing about the Kennedys and the wedding that took place inside the church, hoping to get a glimpse of where it took place only to find the doors locked as the church isn’t typically open when masses are not being help. The new pastor of Saint Mary’s, Father Kris von Maluski seeks to change that after years of being closed to those outside the parish.

Father Kris is giving presentations about the wedding on Tuesday through October 31st from 3-4PM which features video and musical segments. The talk is excellent and Father Kris is quite animated and does a fantastic job. Father Kris tells about the wedding from research and stories told to him by parishioners who experienced it firsthand. There is also a video segment featuring Hugh D. Auchincloss III, stepbrother and life long friend of Jackie in an interview given before he died in Newport in 2015.

St. Mary’s Church is located at 80 Memorial Blvd. West (at Spring St) and parking is on the William Street lot of the church. You can view the church brochure on the wedding at Return to Camelot. Saint Mary’s is also where the Farrell’s got married!
