Father Mike was fantastic to work with! He was responsive, followed up on our emails/texts timely, and sent us a lot of useful information to plan our ceremony. He arrived timely for both our rehearsal and ceremony date that were both on weekends during peak traffic hour (5-6pm) We received many compliments about our ceremony and about his homily. So many of our married guests came up to us and said they found it useful to their lives as well! The ceremony was absolutely wonderful and exactly what I wanted and more. Look no further, I would highly recommend him to officiate your ceremony! Thank you Father Mike!!Oct 31, 2017Verified
Father Mike was amazing. He was always on top of things. He provided us with exceptional service and made our wedding ceremony memorable. He also worked within our budget and baptised our children after our ceremony. He's was on time and prepared. There aren't enough good words I can say about Father Mike.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The "Honorarium Fee" is merely intended to compensate for the time that I spend away from my family, and to defray from the expenses I incur in planning, preparing and celebrating your wedding. Sacraments cannot be sold or bought. All of the sacraments, are free gifts of grace established by Christ for the salvation and holiness of those who receive them. Jesus alone paid the price through His Suffering, Death and Resurrection. Nothing can ever truly compensate fort the cost of ministry, other than the blessings it bestows on the people I work with. I want to make this very clear, this is not a fee for services rendered. This may sound like a fine point, but this is very important. Above all else, this is the ministry that Christ gave to me at my ordination, and so it is not, nor will it ever be a business. What if this is more than I can afford? Since this is a ministry, and we are discussing the celebration of a sacrament, no person or family should ever feel that they cannot call me simply because of the cost. If the offering is beyond your means please let me know, well work something out. I will never turn you away because you cannot afford the 'customary' offering. What is most important to me is that you have Gods blessing at your celebration, and that you feel His love in your hearts and grow in holiness of life. Contact me if you want a Sacramental blessing for your Vow Renewal. Fr Mike
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Because of my background in the Catholic Church and being a Catholic Priest, I have a special understanding of the needs of those who are unable to solemnize their vows formally in the church because of a previous marriage situation, or who might desire to celebrate their vows in a special location or place not approved by the church. If you are divorced or marrying someone who is, or if you no longer attend Church but still identify yourself as Catholic, I can help. I will conduct weddings based in all the major Christian traditions as well as non-religious and civil ceremonies. I am open to any type of service which reflects your personal desires and traditions. It will be important for us to meet together before the service to plan your celebration, and to make sure that I am aware of any special needs or desires you might have. VIP: SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER: For couples who are Catholic (Bride, Groom or Both), the ceremony I celebrate with you does NOT fulfill the requirements of the Catholic Church for a valid sacramental marriage. In order to validate your marriage you will need to CONVALIDATE it by the priest or bishop of your diocese. This is further explained in the FAQ. I will bless your marriage, and I will complete and sign the license at the conclusion of the service. I am licensed in the State of Texas to authorize your marriage. The International Council of Community Churches and all other Christian denominations will recognize your marriage.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Along with this special ministry, I am also available to celebrate uplifting and joyous services for any couple respecting their desire for either a Christian or non-Christian celebration. In my 38 years of priestly ministry, I have celebrated many kinds of religious events, weddings, baptisms, funerals and anniversaries, and I have a very good understanding of the need to project a professional and caring attitude toward the bride, groom and their guests. Therefore, for those wishing a religious ceremony, I will gladly perform weddings in the Catholic tradition to couples who honor me with their requests.
