 Father Jason Worley- A+ Father Worley is the priest that is available to you at SSPJ if you don't have a family priest etc. in mind. I'm so glad that we didn't have someone in mind, because Father Worley was perfect for us. He was not only very laid back and personable, but he was very funny as well. I've never heard people laugh so much at a Catholic wedding! He made the whole process even more enjoyable than it was to begin with. If you are looking for a Catholic priest I would highly recommend him. His home parish is Our Lady Queen of Peace in Baltimore and he can be contacted through them.

 

Our Lady of Chesapeake & Father Raft for ceremony- This is the Catholic Church where we had our ceremony. Raft kept the ceremony short, funny, and to the point. Our guests loved it! The church is beautiful and great for taking photos. Also, the ceremony music provided was great. We had a singer and a piano. It was perfect.  

 

Fr. Tom Walsh – A+  ... Fr. Tom is one of the priests at St. Clement.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about Fr. Tom.  He really let us personalize our ceremony by including an intention for the Baltimore Ravens and Orioles in our Prayer of Faithful.  We met with him two days before our ceremony and told him some more about ourselves, which really helped him personalize his homily.

 

Hannah Sherman Grade: A+  Hannah was friendly and really let us have free reign over our ceremony.  It was short and sweet and included everything we wanted it to have.  Hannah’s friendly and very affordable ($200).  She works out of Geneva Farms but is available throughout the < xml="true" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" prefix="st1" namespace="">Baltimore area.

Geoff Basik, Excellent. Geoff is actually a rabbi who often performs interfaith marriages between and Jewish person and a non-Jewish person. Neither of us are Jewish (I was raised Catholic and FI is nothing), but we wanted to use Geoff because he has been friends with FI's parents for about 20 years. We were is first couple where neither peron was Jewish and we had a non-denominational ceremony. We met with him in January shortly after we were engaged and just about every month up until the wedding. He raised a lot of important questions that I think couples should talk about before getting married and had us do some exercises that actually made it very easy for me to write my own vows. I felt like our ceremony was highly personalized and got a lot of compliments on the personal vows and touches. One of my favorite parts was when FI's father came up to read an original poem he had written for FI's mother a long time ago and then another poem he had written just for our ceremony.

 

Rev. Hope McNew - A+   Hope was great to work with. She lets you tailor your ceremony wording and pick and choose exactly what you would like to include. She was great with organizing our rehearsal and everything went well during the ceremony.

 

Reverend Dina Ciccone - What can I say about Dina other than I LOVE her!  She's sweet, funny, and genuinely caring.  She will craft a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for you and make your wedding rehearsal fun.  She's the best!

 

Rev. Richele Eraso- A+ We can't say enough good things about her- she was loud so that everyone could hear her and we didn't have to mike her.  She made choosing the ceremony selections EASY, and she was just an overall great person. I highly recommend her services.
