We have been featured in The Knot and Weddings in Houston.

We offer marriage services to ALL people whose needs their church of origin (Catholic or Protestant, including Non-Christian) does not meet. We are a Religious Order who officiate at outdoor weddings, hotel weddings, home weddings, churches where visiting clergy are welcomed, weddings for couples with mixed religious affiliations, and at weddings for those who may have had a previous marriage. We also offer spiritual (not necessarily religious) ceremonies. People find us warm, funny and welcoming to all.

We now have staff in the Dallas area. All our officiants are willing to travel most anywhere.

We have officiated a number of destination weddings going as far as Valencia Spain, Atlanta Georgia, the Valley in South Texas, Big Bend National Park in Texas, and North Carolina. No venue is too far or too close for us.

Haven't had our wedding yet, but if it's anything like the prep we've very excited! I will update the review after our wedding, but thus far, Father Claire has been so helpful and informative!

Let me start by saying that finding someone to marry us (me being non denom and my husband catholic) was a very difficult process and more-so because I was adamant about joining the catholic religion strictly for marriage. Catholics without a church was literally a Godsend and found out about them 1 month before our wedding. We were blessed beyond words to have been matched together with Father Tony O'Donovan. From the very start, he was professional, accommodating, and also very REAL. He made us feel comfortable from the very start and we walked away from our first meeting feeling that "we found the right guy!" And we were right. The day of our wedding, he helped us plan the ceremony of our dreams. He made sure to let us know time and time again that the ceremony was about us and we could design it however it fit us. The wedding guests loved him as we did and he even helped lighten up the mood a little bit with just the right amount of humor. We are forever grateful to him and know that in him we have a forever friend, counselor, and spiritual companion. Thank you Father Tony for everything! <3 God Bless You Always.

Archbishop Ben Williams Was a perfect match for us. He was focused on giving us the perfect wedding day.
He was so nice, helpful and caring. He even helped out on setup of the venue. Yes I would recommend him to any one who needs a Catholic priest.

The short version: Very pleased with the services provided by Catholic’s without a Church. Father James Claire is who you want as your wedding officiant, he is truly a pleasure to be around and will make your wedding unforgettable.

The longer version: Father James played such an important role in making my wedding a perfect day. It all started during my rehearsal the day prior to the wedding, when I had no idea what was supposed to be happening and he just took charge of everything. Is important to note, he arrived an hour earlier that day to familiarize himself with the venue and the coordinators - he truly cared!

Father James' cool yet professional and humbling demeanor made the ceremony one to remember. The day of the wedding he was early, and spoke with enthusiasm, and even made some guests laugh. He again of course arrive before schedule and the ceremony was smooth and seamless. During the planning phase, he was responsive, flexible, accommodating and patient on waiting for our responses (which were typically delayed) and just easy to work with overall. We recommend Father James with no hesitation. Which circles back to the short version: Father James Claire is who you want as your wedding officiant, he is truly a pleasure to be around and will make your wedding unforgettable.

Father Milton is HILARIOUS! Everyone said that he was the funniest officiant they have ever met! He was able to really bring a fun and loving vibe to our outdoor ceremony without losing any intimacy. He was perfect and did everything that we asked (and was accommodating when we decided to write our own vows at the last minute)

I cannot stress how grateful my wife and I are to have found Catholics Without A Church. Father Tony was very personable and we felt like old friends discussing our wedding preparations and marriage mindset. As Father Tony says, when you use him for your wedding, you also have a marriage counselor for life. As most brides and grooms are, we both were filled with nervous/anticipation before the ceremony. Father Tony was great at keeping the mood relaxed for us before the ceremony. He had such a fantastic delivery that kept us and our guests engaged in the ceremony. He met with us 3 times before the wedding but was and continues to be available for us at any time. Again, Father Tony was fantastic and can help you plan a wedding that is sure to move everyone to the emotions you want.

We will be forever grateful as he patient and was a great mentor every step of the way. Thank you and the wonderful services this church does for people like us!

Father Milton was awesome! They can do ceremonies that combine two cultures/religions or standard Catholic ceremonies. We needed a Catholic ceremony but outside, instead of in a church. Father Milton met with us before the wedding and offered us some simple good advice and what to expect of him on the big day.

During our ceremony, he was hilarious, caring, and charming. There are many pictures of us cracking up laughing. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone. Just made our day wonderful. Thank you for everything!
