Being a local wedding planner who happens to be planning her own wedding means you pick from the best of the best and that's why we chose Fr. Jim. It was important to me that our ceremony had a light Catholic feel without being in church. Draft...
ing your ceremony flow is easy with the form that Fr. Jim provides and you decide how much scripture to include, how much humor to include and whether it should be traditional, modern, or a blend of both. I knew the first time that I met Fr Jim, that he would marry us and you will too! He makes your ceremony fun, especially when your three year old nephew/ring bearer starts yelling "no, I don't want to" and Fr. Jim doesn't miss a beat and says "That's what Carmen (my now husband) was just telling me". Hilarious! You'll never regret having Fr. Jim officiate your ceremony!

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding officiant than Father Jim for our wonderful wedding day! He brought such a bright charisma to our ceremony it was like we had known him forever! In a day where it is so tough to find a Catholic pri...
est to be an officiant at an off-site venue (at a Golf Course), Fr. Jim did an amazing job and made us feel welcomed the entire time. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars to really show how happy he made us on the day of our wedding!

Father Connors officiated our wedding ceremony a few weeks ago. It was a fantastic experience. I had been having trouble with the Roman Catholic church down the road regarding my marriage to my Hindu husband. I won't go into the long story of i...
t, but slowly I was feeling less and less welcome in the church and finding it to be a very difficult and unhappy experience.
I came across St. Miriam's through this website and read into the Old Catholics. From the second I emailed Father Connors, I was met with kindness, compassion, and true acceptance. He was great through the entire process from helping me pick out ceremony parts, figuring out what traditions to merge, and meeting with us after mass one day just to chat and get to know each other before the wedding day.
The day of, he gave a lovely ceremony that you honestly could not tell was not even "Catholic." It felt just like it would have in church except it was just the ceremony and could be done at the venue. It was a great blend of solemn with a few well deserved jokes that make the entire day great. Even though we had only met once and talked over email, Father Connors was genuinely happy to be presiding and added such a warmth and joy to the entire day. My very Catholic grandparents spoke to him afterwards and were beaming that "he really is a Catholic!" afterwards. So for those who are worried about Roman versus Old, don't worry. It really isn't different at all.
What struck me about the entire experience was the kindness and compassion of the entire church. We both felt welcome the second we set foot in the building and interacted with Father Connors. The day was truly about celebrating our love and not about rules and paperwork. We smile very fondly thinking back on the entire day from start to finish, and Father Connors and St. Miriam's was a huge part of that.

Words cannot begin to describe how incredible Father James ceremony service was. We were getting married out of town which increased our nerves from never meeting him, but we felt like he knew us our entire lives. He made the rehearsal and the ...
ceremony stress free, enlightening and helped us along when our nerves set in. He even cracked some light hearted jokes which everyone always enjoys. We received numerous compliments about his services and we could not be more happy. He even helped me tie my shoe when I was unable to do so. He is a MUST HAVE at your wedding.

We were looking for a Catholic priest to celebrate our ceremony and luckily, we found Monsignor Jim St. George and the Saint Miriam Parish. We did our pre-Cana at the parish church in Flourtown. We attended mass prior to the pre-Cana and the...
members of the parish were very welcoming. Our pre-Cana was authentic and meaningful. Monsignor Jim focused on advising us about what could make or break a marriage. The atmoshere was relaxed and humorous
For our ceremony, Monsignor Jim gave us a list of passages from which to choose. Although we've previewed the passages, Msgr Jim's delivery at our wedding was amazing. He made everything he said truly meaningful and his message of staying in love resonated with us and our guests. He made us laugh and cry. We could not have picked a better celebrant. Thank you for a wonderful celebration, Msgr Jim!

Father Jim is the best! We met with him approximately a year before our wedding. With all the good reviews I read about him, I knew he would be someone who books quickly. When we met with him, he immediately put us at ease and answered any ques...
tions we had. We are not avid church-goers-but being spiritual and growing up Catholic I knew I wanted a priest to officiate our wedding-just not in a church setting.
Father Jim had an enormous repertoire of ceremony choices from which to pick from. There were so many prayers and sayings I loved that I had a hard time choosing one for each section.
Father Jim was also always accessible via email and answered my questions very quickly. On the day of, he helped make the ceremony so memorable and special. I received so many compliments on what a beautiful and unique ceremony we had. I hope to have Father Jim perform other sacraments for us in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone!
