I am an ordained Franciscan, Old Catholic Priest and serve as Pastor of Saint Miriam Parish in Blue Bell, PA, in the suburbs of greater Philadelphia, and just a mile from the Plymouth Meeting Mall. I have been performing weddings since I was ordained a deacon and can accommodate almost any couple. I was also featured in Philadelphia Wedding Magazine's spring and fall issues for 2012 and 2013. I love being a priest, and I love performing weddings! That is probably why I am ranked in the 5% of all officiants nationally for the 6th year in a row!

While I am a priest, I also have married many couples of various denominations and also assisted many inter-faith couples, too. All of my ceremonies are customized. In the Catholic tradition, we take marriage seriously as a sacrament. I welcome the time to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams. I also am able to schedule onsite and offsite rehearsals, if needed, and we offer Pre-Marriage Counseling (Pre-Cana and/or Marriage PREP), as requested, several times a year at our parish.

I have performed well over 980+ weddings in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Florida, the Virgin Islands, California, Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia. I also am asked to perform many weddings as one of the few recommended officiates at Stroudsmoor Country Inn, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, and at Normandy Farms in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania and many other fine wedding venues. If you log into the Talamore Country Club (http://www.talamorepa.com/) the video that begins is one that features a wedding that I did a few years ago. [View by Clicking Here] And another at the beautiful Phoenixville Foundry earlier this year [View by Clicking Here].

Often my schedule fills rather quickly, but if I am unavailable, I am also able to gladly refer you to one of my associate priests or deacons, so that you will remain in very capable hands! So, if you would like your wedding to reflect who you are and at your choice of location while saying your own vows...while having a priest guide you to your wedding day, just contact us!

Be sure to visit our wedding page, or our parish website to learn more about the Old Catholic Church and visit the FAQ's, too.

As always, we welcome your inquiry and we look forward to being with you on your special day!

Father Jim officiated our wedding on June 13, 2015. Since I am Catholic and my husband is Lutheran, we wanted to have an outdoor wedding with a mass like ceremony. Father JIm made this very easy for us and was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout this entire process. He helped us write a beautiful ceremony that truly represented our love for one another and our promises in marriage. He was great at getting back to me with any questions or concerns we had while we were planning our wedding day. He was early for our event and kept our minds at ease. Father JIm truly goes above and beyond what is expected of him. He made sure to meet with us to get to know us on a personal level before the wedding. He made us feel very comfortable with him. We were truly blessed to have such a caring individual to facilitate this beautiful event in our lives.

Father Jim is one of the kindest human being I have ever met. He really set the tone for my wedding with the way he spoke. I was fortunate enough to see him lead his own parish and that's when I knew I wanted him to marry my husband and me. He really guided us the whole way, and he ALWAYS responded to me and my questions so quickly. He really is a great priest and I recommend him highly to those searching for an officiant.

We really can't say enough about what a wonderful experience we've had with Father Jim. From the day we met him, until even after the wedding day, he has always been so kind, always available, and helpful to us. Beyond that however, he made the wedding day even more incredibly special with his kind, warm demeanor, and heartfelt ceremony. Though I've been to many weddings before, I've never heard so many complements from guests about the great officiant as I heard at our own, all complementing Father Jim's sincere and loving performance of the ceremony. We will forever be grateful to him and hold a special place for him in our hearts.

Monsignor Jim is the absolute perfect addition to any wedding ceremony. He is personal, compassionate, and an absolute joy to work with. From beginning to end, he took his time to talk to us, explain to us, and teach us. He was by our side every step of the way and even in a personally challenging time in his life, he was responsive and assertive. Our ceremony was SO personal and Monsignor Jim absolutely WOWed our guest, especially those who are catholic. WE RECOMMEND HIM without reserve and will continue to use his for guidance and special occasions to come!

Father Jim was amazing, he truly gave us the most beautiful ceremony and the best possible start to married life. Our guests have said it's the most beautiful ceremony they have ever seen and he worked in some unique parts to our wedding that were very important to us. He is very easy to talk to, puts everyone at ease, calms nerves and just has a way about him to comfort everyone! Father was very professional, well spoken, extremely easy to communicate with(he always replies within an hour or so) and very flexible with us to create what was best for us. We cannot say enough positive things about him and the beautiful speeches he delivered to our family. We will definitely recommend him to anyone looking. He's worth more than what he changes, which is already a very reasonable rate. Thank you, Father Jim....for everything!

Monsignor Jim was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad that he was a part of our special day. Kyle and I did not want a traditional ceremony so we loved the ability to customize our ceremony. Monsignor Jim guided us through the process, responded to questions we had right away and kept checking in with us to make sure everything was going well. He truly cares about the couples that he marries. When you meet Monsignor Jim, you instantly feel at ease, which is very nice for the day of ceremony for the couples, the parents and for the guests. We would definitely recommend Monsignor Jim to our friends who are getting married.

We chose to work with Father Jim based solely on these weddingwire reviews, and we feel extremely fortunate to have found him! Father Jim is an incredibly kind, insightful priest and officiant. He speaks well and from the heart, and genuinely cares about the couples he marries. In addition to pre-Cana, he took additional time to meet with us and offer counseling during an extremely difficult time in our lives. We are very grateful for his help and service. I would strongly recommend him and his parish!

We were so pleased to have Msgr. Jim be our officiant for our wedding. My husband was raised catholic, but is not very religious. Msgr. made him feel extremely comfortable and now wishes we could be a part of his church if it wasn't so far from where we live. We had a traditional filipino wedding, which includes a long ceremony with various parts. Msgr. Jim knew exactly what to do, and was amazing at getting back on track when something hilariously went wrong during our ceremony like the rings being dropped twice. All of our guests were talking about him after the ceremony. They thought he was amazing and had such a great aura. From most weddings I've been to and as far as I'm aware, the officiant is usually never praised. I would not hesitate to refer Msgr Jim. We are very lucky to have found him and he will always hold a special place in our family.

Father Jim surpassed our expectations!! From the very beginning, Father Jim was extremely responsive to e-mails and worked with us to find a convenient time for our pre-marital counseling ("Marriage PREP"). We have to say that our one-on-one PREP session with Father Jim was refreshing and very helpful. It was a time we were able to connect with Father Jim before the wedding, and really talk about issues we wouldn't normally discuss. Father Jim will make you feel comfortable; like you've known him for years. He guided us towards the perfect ceremony, and we appreciated his professional suggestions. On our wedding day, we felt at ease with Father Jim, and we received so many compliments on the ceremony! We would highly recommend him to everyone!
