Seeking Help: Need Catholic Priest for concelebration in marriage ceremony!

By GMoney 12 September 2008 25

Its a simple request…

Im getting married in about six months time, however the lady of my life is not Catholic and wants the marriage to occur in her church.

Heres where the fun begins, I dont know any Catholic priests in Canberra that might take part in a concelebration.

Anyone know a Catholic priest that could help??

If you want a Catholic wedding outside a Catholic church, you will need permission from the Bishop. In Canberra, I think Bishop Pat Power does most of that stuff. Phone number is here:

The Caulfields wanted to do this for our wedding (both raised as Catholics, although non-practicing now). I had an old family friend who married us (Jesuit Priest), he would have married wherever we liked, but he said it wouldn’t even be worth asking the locals if we could have an out of church wedding as it would be a big fat “NO”.

We got married at the church in Hall.

That was back in 1998, so maybe the church has moved with the times since then … haha!

Ahhh – the Catholic religion. “We accept and love everyone…except homosexuals, people with body piercing, non-catholics etc etc. We DO accept kiddy fiddlers though. Hang-on, we’re over quota in that department”.

HAHAH! awesome.
knew it wouldn’t be long til the withered hand of “begging for cheap laughs” reared it’s head. Well done Sir, you are a giant/ optimus prime/ porn star/ whatever it is you wish you were.

Had a Catholic/C of E marriage many years ago myself. But O/S, so not of much use here. The two priests/ministers took it in turns to go through the service, and it worked out extraordinarily well. We were not berated/leaned on re the religion/schooling of the potential kids. I have no idea which religion’s register we signed. Still a day to remember.

Gees Irish Catholic Priests can drink!

I’m surprised Catholic priests would be this worried about the details. Anglican ministers will marry you pretty much anywhere.

Oh, and I only believe in gay marriage when both chicks are hot.
