About this pro

I am a feminist Catholic minister with nearly a decade of experience in liturgy, pastoral care and preaching. I would welcome the opportunity to act as your wedding officiant or assist with other sacramental needs (baptism, renewal of vows, etc). I am also available for spiritual direction, preaching and public speaking on issues related to gender and sexuality in the Catholic Church. I serve as an ordained deacon in the Roman Catholic Womanpriest movement and commissioned minister in the Federation of Christian Ministries. I am also a queer person, someone in an interfaith marriage, and a mom-- all of which make me deeply committed to a vision of religion that is feminist, inclusive and justice-centered. I love ministering to people who may feel left out of organized religion, including LGBTQ people, people committed to women's equality in the Catholic Church, and people in interfaith relationships. While I have a deeply Catholic identity, I have also spent years working in interfaith, Unitarian Universalist, Quaker and Jewish settings, and I welcome the opportunity to minister to people regardless of their religious tradition (or lack thereof).

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Wedding ceremonies are a sliding scale between $200-700. A liturgy that has been specially crafted for you is generally no less than $500. However, some sliding scale prices are available for low-income couples who need to have their wedding on a budget. Other liturgical events (baptisms, etc) are generally between $200-400, depending on the scale of the event. I am also available for preaching and public speaking events for $150-300. You can read samples of my sermons and homilies on my website.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I prefer to have at least two meetings with customers, where I can get a sense of who they are and work with them to craft a service that reflects their personality and values. I typically will send at least two drafts of the service to the couple in advance, to be sure that the service I create matches their hopes and needs. However, I appreciate that not all couples want a unique, tailor-made service. I am also available to offer a more formulaic service, which costs less and does not require as much work with me in advance.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I hold a Masters in Divinity from Pacific School of Religion and a certificate in Women's Studies in Religion from the Graduate Theological Union. I am an ordained deacon in the Roman Catholic Womanpriest movement and commissioned minister in the Federation of Christian Ministries.
