      In China it has become fashionable to invite a priest to a wedding
       
       
       
      BEIJING.  According  to Fr. Dionisy Pozdnyaev, priest-in-charge of SS Peter & Paul Church in Hong Kong,  Christian wedding ceremonies are gaining popularity in China.
       
      "It has become fashionable to arrange something like a wedding - the couple doesn't go to church, but they exchange rings, pledge faithfulness to each other; it is a put-together secular rite. The rage is to invite a real priest to participate in this event, preferably a foreign priest. I've been invited twice "- said Fr.  Dionisy in an interview published Friday in the newspaper  "Amurkaya Pravda. " 

      Once the priest even saw an advertisement on a Catholic church: "A Church wedding -  is fashionable, creative, powerful!" The banner displayed a Chinese bride in a white dress, surrounded by birds and flowers.
