I am an ordained Franciscan, 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 as a deacon and can accommodate almost any couple. We are a progressive Old Catholic parish with a strong emphasis on worship and a life of prayer and where we honor the Sacraments. We provide a strong Catholic Liturgy and liberal Catholic education, and welcome everyone without reservation. I was also featured in Philadelphia Wedding Magazine's spring and fall issues and have been on WeddingWire for several years. 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 5th year in a row!

I have performed well over 800+ 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. You may learn more about wedding planning and options at my parish website, www.mySaintMiriam.org/weddings.html. There you will also find an FAQ section to help with any concerns or planning questions and to help you understand the differences between denominational rules and acceptance.

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. Please note that in the Old Catholic tradition, we take marriage seriously as a Sacrament and proper preparation is urged. I welcome the time to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams. I also attend onsite and offsite rehearsals, if needed, and we offer pre-marriage counseling (Pre-Cana and Marriage PREP), as requested, several times a year at our parish. (See: http://mysaintmiriam.org/weddings.html#cana)

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 one of our deacons, so that you will be in 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 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! Read less

If I could give a 10 star rating I would! Father Jim was absolutely fantastic to work with from the very start of our booking to our wedding day. His attention to detail and super quick response time made working with him an absolute joy. In addition, we really enjoyed our pre-cana (marriage prep) class and felt it was very valuable for couples entering marriage. It is obvious that he is passionate about what he does and takes great pride in making your ceremony special. My husband and I could not be more pleased with the level of service we received from Father Jim and we plan on keeping in touch! If you are considering Father Jim for your wedding, you will not be disappointed :)

We were truly blessed to find Father Jim to marry us in August 2014! He was so easy to work with and correspond with to create our perfect ceremony. Father Jim helps you build the exact ceremony you want with tons if options and incorporate. We even took his Pre Cana class which was extremely beneficial and enjoyable. If we didn't live 90 mins away we'd want to see him every Sunday! Father Jim was extremely flexible in trying to arrange everything. He was constantly emailing me back in a timely manner and never grew tired of my endless questions to him! He was supportive throughout our entire process together. Father Jim made our ceremony feel personal and as if he's known is for years, not simply for the past year. His ability and willingness to be less traditional with the Catholic Traditions was exactly what we were looking for. I could not recommend any one better than Father Jim. We plan on staying in contact throughout our lifetime because he left that much of an impact on our hearts within the short time of knowing him. I truly wish I had him in my hometown!

If you want to get married outside, yet still incorporate Catholic elements into your wedding, Father Jim is your officiant! Dealing with Father Jim was by far the easiest aspect of our wedding - he was very responsive, flexible and kind in all of our dealings. The ceremony itself was beautiful, timed perfectly and left all of our guests asking "where did you find that priest?!" I would recommend his services without hesitation.

Father Jim was amazing! We were both raised Catholic and wanted to incorporate that into our ceremony, but at the same time wanted to get married outdoors. That is what originally led us to Father Jim, and he was even better than expected. He was extremely responsive (generally responded to emails right away), and made the planning process very easy. After our beautiful ceremony, our guests kept saying how it was one of the nicest they've ever been to. I would definitely suggest him to anyone--especially those who wants a religious ceremony while still getting to personalize it.

We could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. Father Jim responds to EVERY email and/or phone call on the same day and always answers every question you may have. He has a way to make you feel comfortable and important. He arrived to our ceremony early and filled out the marriage license and was available for any last minute questions we had. My husband and I already had a baby and Father Jim suggested we include him in the announcement at the end of the ceremony. He passes no judgments, and is one of the most genuine people that I know. Many of our guests told us how great they thought the priest was and we already recommended him to others. If you are looking for a great officiant, then Father Jim is definitely the BEST choice regardless of your religious views. It could not have gone smoother and I could not have asked for a better person to do the job. Thanks again Father Jim!
Love, Rachel and Joe Sautter

There is not enough room on here to express how wonderful Monsignor Jim was for our wedding. We were nervous about finding an officiant and could not have been more happy with who we picked. He was extremely professional and attentive during the entire process. He was always quick to respond to your questions and offered great advice as well. On the night of our rehearsal, our venue manager left before the rehearsal even started (which we weren't surprised about). Even though it shouldn't have been his responsibility, Monsignor Jim stepped in and helped to run the rehearsal for us. He was absolutely amazing every step of the way and it made our wedding planning that much more enjoyable knowing we did not have to stress over our officiant. I've never been to a wedding where people leave and they are talking about how wonderful the person performing the ceremony was. If you choose Monsignor Jim, it will be one of the best decisions you ever make. I will be recommending him to anyone I know getting married in the future without hesitation. Thank you again so much for everything Monsignor!

Father Jim went above and beyond my expectations as the officiant for our wedding on June 6th. My husband and I, as well as our families, are all still talking about how much we loved having him there for our special day.

I would recommend him for any wedding, regardless of your religion and personal views. We were able to make our own custom ceremony, which was awesome. My husband and I are both Catholic but didn't want our outdoor ceremony to feel like a full mass, so we were able to use Catholic prayers and then mixed it up with some modern readings. Our ceremony was so beautiful because Father Jim really worked with us to personalize it the way we wanted.

Not only that, but he is so easy to get in touch with and is very responsive with any questions. It is very obvious that he loves marrying couples, and for that, he made our wedding day even more perfect. Thank you so much, Father Jim!

Father James St. George came highly recommended to my husband and I by our wedding planner at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn and was simply outstanding!

With his guidance, we were able to customize our wedding ceremony to be just want we wanted. He was extremely quick with responses to our questions and concerns along the way, and had no problem making some last minute changes to our ceremony upon request. It was exactly what my husband and I needed, as wedding planning can get stressful at times!

He was extremely kind, jovial and patient, even managing to calm my husbands nerves before the ceremony. We could not have asked for anyone better!

When my then fiance and I met Father Jim, we felt an instant connection with him. I am Catholic but my fiance (now husband) is not a religious person, but was baptized Presbyterian. I was worried that my fiance would feel pressured with having a Catholic ceremony and a Catholic priest as our officiant. After a visit with Father Jim, we felt he was the right choice for us because he understood where Steve and I were in our lives, and where we were headed in our relationship from ALL standpoints, and not just religion. He answered any and all questions we had in person and via email (almost instantly). He walks you through the entire process of customizing your ceremony and he constantly reminds you that the ceremony is ONLY about you and your significant other. Father Jim also guides you in writing your own vows (which Steve and I did) if you so choose to do this.

When he arrived at our venue on our wedding day (we did not get married in a church, but Father Jim traveled to us), my family also felt a connection with him and it was a great sight to see. It seemed as if Father Jim had known my family and I for years. It was incredibly comforting to have an officiant like Father Jim, who showed kindness and attention to all who were present on our wedding day.

If you want an officiant who will be present both in mind and body, Father Jim is the perfect choice. I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.

We really cannot say enough wonderful things about Father Jim -- from his responsiveness to our emails, to his professionalism and flexibility, to the absolutely beautiful ceremony he helped us put together. When we contacted Father Jim about officiating our wedding ceremony, he was open and receptive to our ideas. He met with us and shared his philosophy about weddings and marriage, which we both agreed with and appreciated. We emailed several times over the course of planning our ceremony and were able to customize our ceremony to capture exactly what we wanted. In addition, he met with us several times in order to work through how to incorporate my husband's children into the ceremony. Father Jim was always patient, kind, and more than willing to answer our questions. We got married on January 1 in the Four Seasons in Philadelphia and he accomodated our request despite New Year's Day being a church holiday. We just watched our wedding and loved the ceremony. Our day would not have been the same without Father Jim!

Msgr. Jim was an amazing officiant from start to finish. He takes time to get to know you and crafts a ceremony that best fits your needs. His responsiveness is off the charts, even outside of regular business hours he'd usually write back to emails within 60-90 minutes (sometimes faster!). Msgr. Jim is a popular officiant, and you get the benefit of that experience, but he never makes you feel like just another "client" At our reception so many guests commented that our ceremony was very original and so "us", and we never could have achieved that without Msgr. Jim.

He was so friendly and warm and he gave the very personalized ceremony that we designed with him in such a powerful and moving way. Everyone was so touched and teary eyed. Father Jim made our ceremony so meaningful to us and our friends and family and he was very accomodating to our needs. My husband and I are not religious but our families are, and Father Jim did an excellent job making all of us very happy. I highly recommend Father James St George to anyone wanting a beautiful, flexible, low stress wedding ceremony. -Amanda

Monsignor Jim is fantastic! I found him about nine months before my wedding date by searching on wedding wire. He promptly responded to my initial email, and all my future emails were replied to with the same speed. He was incredibly flexible, agreeing to marry us on a Sunday despite that being already his busiest day of the week. He allows you to customize your own wedding ceremony and makes this easy by sending you a packet with an outline and various options for each section. On the day of the rehearsal, he was a pro. His presence at the rehearsal made everything go smoothly and efficiently. On the day of the ceremony, he amazed us all. The words he said were beautiful and moving, and he delivered them with such feeling and joy. My guests commented all evening long on what a great job he did, and I completely agree. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant!

Father Jim is simply the best.
After meeting with him over a year before our wedding, my husband and I walked out and nodded at each other - this is the guy. Not only is he respectful of the faith, but understanding and welcoming.

Every meeting is meaningful and makes you feel glad that you are working with him. His pre-cana seminar is honest and centered on the couple, instead of the church.

Throughout the planning process Father Jim provides you with materials and support to create your own wedding ceremony. Numerous people commented on how beautiful and appropriate our choices were, especially coming from such a genuine person.

Although he couldn't attend our rehearsal, the wedding went smoothly and he even gracefully noted humorous hiccups during our ceremony.

Overall, I am incredibly happy that we worked with Father Jim and look forward to staying in touch through the years.

Msgr Jim was the best. He was wonderful to work with, extremely responsive via email with any questions. He even helped me with questions about obtaining our marriage license. We were able to select our own ceremony and make it what we wanted.

Father Jim was amazing. My husband has always been a little leery of "religion" but had agreed to allow me to find a Catholic Priest for our service because it was something I had always dreamed of. Father Jim won him over with his incredible attitude and passion for his faith. As my husband said "He is how all ministers and priests should be" and I wish more priests were like him. He worked with us through the writing of the service and our ceremony was beautiful! It was everything we could have asked for. All of our guests were raving about him!

I would recommend Father Jim to anyone!

Father Jim was the perfect officiant for us. Since I was raised Catholic my mother had always wanted me to get married by a priest. On the other hand, I had always wanted to get married outside so I did not think I was going to be able to make both of us happy. After doing some research, I found an officiant that would give both of us what we wanted (A catholic priest and an outdoor ceremony): Father Jim. From the start, he made my fiance and I feel very comfortable and happy that we chose him to marry us. He was always extremely responsive, answering emails almost immediately. He provided us with so many options for our ceremony that we were really able to make it your own. We even took some of his options but added our own lines to make it truly unique to our personalities. I cannot say enough good things about Father Jim. He kept with the serious nature of a wedding ceremony while also making it lighthearted which fit us perfectly as a couple. Even after the ceremony we had guests come up to us and rave about Father Jim. Working with Father Jim was awesome and I would not change one thing about our ceremony!

Rev. James St. George was amazing as our officiant. I am very religious and Catholic, but not a church goer. As soon as I met him with my husband, I felt calm and at ease. Every question I had the day I met him disappeared. As the wedding process moved on, he was very quick to answer emails and was available as I needed him. I was in the hospital getting diagnosed with asthma 1 week before our wedding and was completely out of sorts the night of our rehearsal. Father Jim, as I learned to call him, was so very sweet with me and made me smile and feel at ease and laugh when I was feeling awful. He even went so far as to send me an e- card telling me he hoped I felt better with a very lovely prayer.
The day of our wedding I was overwhelmingly happy to have chosen Father Jim. Our ceremony was beautiful and full of meaning. Everyone was so impressed with him. I can not say enough good things about him. Even when I got back the pictures from our ceremony and our video, it looked as if he had known us forever and he really picked up on small subtleties he noticed between my husband and I. You will be so happy that you chose Father Jim.

Monsignor Jim and we kept in contact via email well before the wedding. Because of the distance between us, my wife and I were able to meet him only once prior to the ceremony. At that conference, the mood was casual, as though we were all old friends meeting up to reminisce. My local priest was unable to perform the ceremony (because of the local diocese's regulations), but Monsignor Jim more than fulfilled the role of officiant. He is an exemplar for what a modern Catholic should be. He has his own personality as a human being, but he is more than willing to accommodate the needs of those he marries. I will forever bow to him as a person and as a man of the cloth.

When my now husband and I were planning our wedding, my mom had one major request- that we get married by a priest. I had always pictured an outdoor wedding, and since I grew up Catholic and my husband has no religious background we didn't think we'd be able to find a priest willing to marry us. After doing some online research we came across Father Jim and from the first email contact we knew we had found our priest. He is warm, caring, down-to-earth, and not once did we feel judged or criticized for our personal belief systems. Father Jim supported us every step of the way, from developing a personalized ceremony to our Marriage PREP session at St. Miriam's parish. He is very responsive, professional, and quick to return emails. After our wedding we received several compliments on our ceremony and we could not have been happier with our entire experience. Our only regret is that we now wish we had him attend our rehearsal too! I cannot recommend Father Jim enough- you will be in great hands!

I had always wanted to get married in an outdoor ceremony, but as a Catholic didn't think I would ever be able to have that and still be married by a priest. We asked Father Jim to officiate our ceremony based on a recommendation from our friends for whom he officiated as well. He was wonderful at their wedding, very personable with just the right touch of humor, so we were really excited to work with him for our ceremony. The entire process was fantastic. He provided a wide variety of ceremony options, and then we customized it to fit our personalities. Throughout the months of planning, Father Jim was extremely responsive everytime I had a question or needed his input. We also had a rehearsal with him prior to the wedding, which I definitely recommend. He put my parents and my new in-laws at ease and it was really great for them to have a chance to meet him before the big day. When it finally came time for our ceremony, Father Jim even exceeded my expectations. I already knew what the ceremony entailed, but his delivery was so genuine and personal that it felt like he had known us most of our relationship. Our family and friends raved about him and even my most devout family members were thoroughly impressed with the ceremony. I would 110% recommend Father Jim to anyone looking for a more personal experience from an officiant!

Father Jim was such a pleasure to work with. We met with him and he is so passionate and truly wants to get to know each couple and for them to know that he is available to speak with them at any time - before or after the wedding. He was so responsive in every email communication and helped us develop the perfect wedding. He told us at our meeting that during the ceremony, he would 'make a joke and everyone would love him' and he didn't disappoint! It poured the day of our wedding, and he managed to make a very brief statement towards the end of the ceremony about the rain that was equal parts personal, engaging and hilarious! Our family and friends raved about him after the ceremony. He is truly fantastic, in every aspect - personally and professionally!

Msgr. Jim performed our ceremony on 6/1/13. He exceeded our every expectation both on the wedding day and prior to it, and we couldn’t have made a better choice!
Msgr. Jim has three main strengths that set him apart from others: 1. He is extremely responsive to our requests (responds to email within minutes), 2. He is practical in his approach (provides compassionate advice without relying on church practices that he feels are vapid), 3. He is incredibly intuitive and he has the ability to intently listen and later respond, providing useful insight.
In addition, a unique service that Msgr Jim provides is that he is willing to perform a marriage outside of church walls and recognize that marriage as a Catholic sacrament. To our knowledge, there is no other priest in the state of Pennsylvania who is willing to do so.
Msgr. Jim made everything easy on us. For example, he sent us examples of other ceremonies so we could build our own ceremony without too much outside research. The day of the wedding, he showed up early, appeared relaxed, performed the ceremony with enthusiasm, and mailed the marriage license to the state promptly.
Not only did Msgr Jim meet with us twice before the ceremony, he insisted on getting to know us as a couple beforehand in order to assess our shared values with respect to family, finances, etc. During the conversation, we could sense his compassion and innate understanding of human relationships. He always tells us the truth rather than what we want to hear. He gave us practical ways to cope with conflict. He asked us to come back to him should we ever have any serious marital problems, and we are really grateful to have him as a life long advisor.
These are just a few examples of how Msgr Jim made our lives easier during an incredibly stressful time. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Msgr. Jim to any couple- Catholic or not.

When John and I began the very exciting -but also somewhat intimidating and overwhelming -- process of planning a wedding it became very clear that the person marrying us was a very important component. I think everyone prioritizes the parts that mean something to them ~ as two Catholic people to whom faith is both personal and important, we wanted to find someone we felt reflected our beliefs. What was so amazing about Father Jim was his philosophy and thoughts regarding the sacrement of marriage ~ because I had been previously married and divorced, John and I didn't think we could get married by a Catholic priest or even in the Catholic church. Father Jim was able to give us the impossible, which felt like a miracle. I don't think I can speak highly enough of him, or the process. Father Jim's knowledge, attitude ~ just everything. You want someone standing before and marrying you to feel like a friend, a personal contact you knows you and whom you trust. It one hundred percent felt that way ~ I felt at ease, & as though Father Jim was as invested in our marriage and the special sacredness of it as we were. I believe he was. I think if you are looking for someone who loves what he does, and for it to be a uniquely personal experience, you couldn't find someone better than Father Jim.

We chose Monsignor Jim as our wedding officiant and there are no words to express how kind and generous this man is. He was very flexible with our date (being it was the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend) and he ensured that we would be able to meet prior to the wedding to get to know each other. He and the members of his parish welcomed us to a morning mass with open arms- we felt right at home and blessed to have been invited. Monsignor was easily accessible, he always answered emails as soon as he could (which was normally immediately). I think the most valuable aspect about our relationship with Monsignor was- and what really made our wedding day special- was his ability to personalize our ceremony. If we had a preference to a reading or wanted to add/change somethings- he did it without question, even suggested some things to make it perfect. The one thing that everyone was talking about at the cocktail hour- wasn't about the ceremony music or the flowers- it was about how well Monsignor presented himself and how he made our ceremony- well just that, ours.

Father Jim was an absolutely amazing officiant. We were planning our wedding from long-distance and Father Jim was very quick to answer our many emails and questions. My husband and I did not hire a wedding coordinator either so during the rehearsal Father Jim took it upon himself to direct everyone on how to proceed up the aisle, where to stand, and how the ceremony would proceed. His manner was always warm & gracious, whether via email or in person. His words at the ceremony were beautiful, especially an unexpected blessing for our armed services (my husband served in the Army) which brought me to tears. My relatives all praised Father Jim afterward and many said they had not heard a ceremony that moving in a while. Thank you Father Jim!

Father Jim was wonderful! The entire process, from the time we first met up through the ceremony was absolutely incredible. We could be ourselves around Father Jim, and he takes a genuine interest in every couple he works with. Father Jim made it a priority to get to know us prior to our wedding day.

Our experience and ceremony the day of was amazing. Father Jim was punctual, organized and put us at ease. He took the time to interact and get to know our families and wedding party. The entire family loved him.

Designing the ceremony could not have been easier, and the options for ceremony design were endless.

We are so happy with our decision to have Father Jim marry us, and would not change a single thing.

Several friends have already asked for his contact information, and we would recommend Father Jim to any couple we met.

Thank you Father Jim for everything! The ceremony exceeded our expectations.

He was easy to talk to, professional and allowed the couple to make their ceremony unique. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. I highly recommend Father Jim to anyone who is looking to honor our faith and add a personal touch to their wedding.

My fiance and I attended my cousin's wedding last year and Monsignor James St. George was the Officiate. The ceremony was wonderfully poignant and yet, very modern. We later asked him be the Officiate at our wedding this past month.

My entire family and all of our friends, young and old, adored our wedding ceremony. We were able to choose the various blessings which made it so much more personal to us and our attendees. I would highly recommend the Monsignor and sincerely appreciate all of the time he took with us to make our marriage ceremony the most beautiful part of our wedding day!

Father Jim is amazing! Both my husband and I were raised in the Catholic faith, but as we've gotten older we've distanced ourselves from the Church. When we got engaged we were eager to find a ceremony officiant who could recognize both our traditional catholic parents while also being relevant and meaningful to our lives--Father Jim was the answer. Father Jim crafted an amazing services that recognized our parents faiths as well as our own. I can't begin to count the number of people who complimented us on our service after it was finished--perhaps the best compliment of all came from my cousin (who was married in a traditional catholic service) that the ceremony made her love her husband more--WOW.
The ceremony was my favorite part of the entire wedding--absolutley fantastic! Thank you, Father Jim!!!

Father Jim provided us with THE most beautiful ceremony we ever could have dreamed of. The number of people who made it a point to come up to us and tell us how beautiful the ceremony was, how they really liked Father and how they really connected with him, was overwhelming. Young and old, friends and family, everyone had something nice to say about Father. Father Jim worked with my husband and I to put together a ceremony that was personalized and meaningful to us and our families and we knew in advance we would love it, but Father found a way to add in some other details that really made the ceremony complete for us. We simply cannot say enough about how much it meant to us to have Father be a part of our day. We feel truly blessed to have found him and that he was the one to provide the perfect start to our married life together.

Father Joe Klemas from St. Miriam’s was our Officiant and we couldn’t have been more pleased. He and his wife were so wonderful to work with. They are very kind people! They made planning everything very easy by providing tons of examples of different ceremony layouts. They also were very professional and responsive throughout the whole process. We were able to meet with him on two separate occasions to get to know each other and go over everything. The ceremony itself was perfect. Father Joe followed the ceremony we mapped out with perfection and added a nice touch of his own. He spoke with sincerity and honesty and he made each word feel meaningful. Our ceremony didn’t sound “scripted” at all, (which I’ve witnessed before), and so each guest felt personally involved with the ceremony and our vows. All in all, our wedding was beautiful thanks to Father Joe and we’re so happy we chose him as our officiant. THANK YOU FATHER JOE!!!!!!

We wish you could have stayed for a bit, but we understand. We will send some pictures soon and would not mind if you use them to show everyone what they may enjoy if they engage your services!

I can not thank nor recommend Father Jim enough to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding. From the very first time we sat down to talk with Father Jim he was open and honest about the entire process and the true meaning and depth behind what we were preparing to do. He is an incredibly kindhearted and gentle man, and all his correspondents were always cheerful, prompt, and full of excitement for us. The best part of the services Father Jim provides is that he works with you to costumize your ceremony so it is true to who you are as a couple. From prayers to readings to rites, Father's selection of options are amazing and really make the whole ceremony personal. For us we have so many friends and family of so many creeds and faiths we wanted to make sure everyone felt comfortable and were reminded of how much my husband and I loved them - afterall, the love, support, and laughter of our family and friends shaped us in to the two people we are today and helped to bring us to this point in our lives. We really wanted to emphasize love and family and Father Jim really helped us to do that. I can honestly say I truly felt God present in our ceremony and I attribute that all to Father Jim. Quite a few of our guests came up to me afterwards and commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how down to Earth and genuine Father was. It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with Father Jim, and my only regret is that we don't live closer to his parish so we could join him for mass. He really helped make our day perfect and one we will both never forget. Thank you, Father, from the bottom of both of our hearts - you made our dreams come true!

Monsignor Jim was one of our favorite vendors at our August 18th wedding! Not only was he the most easily accessible through email or phone during the whole planning process, he was a pleasure to work with during our rehearsal and wedding day. During our ceremony, he spoke beautifully, and put all nerves at ease. As a Catholic and non-Catholic, we were able to customize our wedding to reflect our individual needs, and created something truely personalized and special. I would highly recommend Monsignor Jim to all brides seeking an officiant.

My husband and I feel so very blessed to have met Father Jim. My husband and I are both Roman Catholic, but we did not want to get married in a church. Although some members of our family were upset of this decision, they met Father Jim and no longer questioned our decision.

Prior to our wedding day, I emailed Father Jim with countless questions and he emailed me back so quickly. I was so grateful for this. Aside from these quick responses, he did an amazing job with the ceremony details. Although we wanted certain components of a Catholic wedding, we also wanted to add a personal touch to it and Father Jim was all for it!

Although the shuttle was late arriving to the ceremony (with all of the groomsmen), Father Jim was punctual and of course, kept things light hearted and calm.

Furthermore, Father Jim was a joy to work with. You will love him just like our families and friends did!

Sincerely,
Angela Weathers

Father Jim was absolutely amazing! He truly helped make our day so special. He worked with us to customize the ceremony into an event that was a reflection of our love and who we are as a couple. He was able to speak about us as couple as if he had known us for our entire lives. Multiple guests at our wedding commented to my husband and I that our ceremony was "the most beautiful they ever experienced", "the most romantic ceremony" and "way better than my wedding ceremony, it was so personal". I highly recommend Father Jim to anyone looking for an officiant.

We are so thrilled to have had Father Jim as the officiant for our wedding. He is kind, accommodating, and funny, and made the entire wedding process much less stressful by always responding to questions and concerns very quickly and reassuringly. I was raised Roman Catholic but felt unsure about getting married in the Catholic Church for various reasons (political, my fiancé is not Catholic, the lack of personalization in ceremonies). Finding Father Jim and Saint Miriam Church was a real blessing. We were able to have some wonderful religious elements in our ceremony, but also the opportunity to include more personal aspects. We would highly recommend Father Jim to anyone looking for a warm and creative wedding officiant. And Saint Miriam is a wonderful place to be too!

Father Jim provided us with a wedding ceremony for us that will always remember and cherish. We had limited time due to an impending storm threatening our outdoor cermony, but Father Jim handle the situation impeccably. He made humor out of the fact that there was thunder as we were reciting our vows and our guests raved at how wonderful the ceremony was. We ended up having to cut out about 2/3 of the ceremony we had planned, but it was still everything we could have imagined our wedding day to be thanks to Father Jim.

He is very lighthearted and that is exactly what we were looking for in an officiant for our ceremony. We would recommend him to anyone!

Thanks Father Jim!

I am so happy we found Father Jim. He really understood the type of cereomony we were looking for: something spiritual but easy to relate to our everyday lives. He was very open to our suggestions and guided us through the process of putting together a perfect ceremony.

We had our wedding in Somerset, NJ and we really appreciate that he made the journey out to perform our ceremony. All of our guests thought he was fantastic and very cool as he read from his Ipad. Most of all he is a very warm person and we feel blessed to have him marry us and be such a important part of our special day. We highly recommend him.

Father Jim is the absolute best! From the very beginning, he was extremely easy to work with and returned every phone call and email almost instantly every time! We wanted a very specific type of ceremony, and he provided us with a list of all options available. From there, it was so easy to pick and choose the parts that worked best for us. We received so many compliments from our guests about his sense of humor and professionalism and we can't say enough good things about him.

Father Jim was nothing short of incredible. Here is why...I did not grow up going to church so religion is not something that was very prominent in my life. My husband on the other hand is catholic. When we decided to have an outdoor ceremony this became a bit of an issue.

When I found Father Jim, all of my worries melted away. From the moment we sat down to discuss our circumstances, he was so understanding and made me feel comfortable. Comfortable being quite and understandment as this is the first time I've spoken with a priest one on one. Immediately, I was delighted to have him marry us. Father Jim is a breath of fresh air. Both of our families were beyond impressed.

If you are searching for an officiant, please, please, look no further. I can personally guarantee that you will not be able to find anyone who can serve you better than him. Looking back, had he NOT married us, I feel our day would not be complete or nearly as special as it was.

Calling you out here Father Jim, but I seem to recall making even you tear up during my vows :) You are amazing. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart - Mrs. O'Malia

Father James was awesome! Everybody loved him at the ceremony. He was fantastic.

First off, just talking through emails, he's super responsive, very friendly, and makes it so easy! He sent us some sample guides to the ceremony which we easily pieced together and had a fantastic ceremony. We met with him a few weeks before the wedding to go over some things; we had arrived early and sat in a mass, and it was very, very friendly and welcoming. After leaving the meeting, we felt SO GREAT about choosing him.

He even uses and Ipad which is pretty smart and awesome. He knows his way in and out of a Wedding, he's highly experienced, super friendly and I'd highly recommend Father James!

Thank you so much! Andrew & Amber

He was so professional yet felt like a close friend. I am truly grateful for everything he has helped us with during our planning. Our wedding day was beautiful. Everyone said how wonderful he was.
He also knew exactly what to say to keep me (the bride) calm and remember how fun it was all suppose to be.
The ceremony was prepared by Fr. Jim and I couldn't have imagined it to be any better. He customized our unity ceremony to fit our personalities and even sent us suggestions to work with.
We love Fr. Jim and hope to stay in contact with you. Thanks for making our ceremony so memorable.

We knew it would be difficult (if not impossible) to find a Catholic officiant since our wedding ceremony would not be in a church, so were very happy when we read about Father Jim & St. Miriam Parish and all the stellar reviews. Their open and accepting message was a breath of fresh air! Father Jim was very responsive during the planning process. He sent us a ton of options for our ceremony and vows and we feel like what we chose was written just for us. Father Jim had a great sense of humor and a constant sense of calm that helped us enjoy our ceremony and still be moved by the meaning. I feel truly blessed that he participated in our special day.

We found Monsignor Jim through the Wedding Wire website. After reading about him and his church, St. Miriam's in Blue Bell, PA on the internet, we became convinced that we wanted him to officiate over our wedding. When we met with him the first time, it was apparent that we had made the right choice. He is very personable and compassionate. We now attend church services periodically and really enjoy his sermons. The church is very welcoming to all. The groom's family is Italian Catholic so it was important to incorporate that in the ceremony while we also wanted it to be personal and spiritual. We wanted to honor the groom's decease father and our children from previous marriages. We needed to include Italian during the ceremony for the groom's mother who spoke little English. Monsignor Jim was patient and accommodating, helping us to accomplish that. Both of us were extremely nervous the day of our wedding and he brought a calming effect to our ceremony, he engaged our guests and was able to quickly recover (even joking) during the minor "oops" - no lighter for unity candle and we forgot the Italian phrases. Our families were very impressed by Monsignor Jim. We could not have been more pleased with our ceremony and now have beautiful memories to last us a lifetime. We would highly recommend Monsignor Jim for both wedding ceremonies and church services.

Father Jim treated the situation with care and dignity and helped us work a tribute into the ceremony that was uplifting.

With Father Jim at the altar you cannot forget that your wedding day is a celebration! He emotes love, honesty and joy! Everyone of my guests mentioned the ceremony during the reception saying that it was "amazing' and "memorable". My now husband and I are truly thankful for Father Jim and recommend him highly!

After we were referred to Father Jim, it only took a few minutes into his Mass we attended at St. Miriam's in Blue Bell for us to feel like we had found our match. Father Jim is compassionate and kind. He helped make our wedding day so special and unique. I am Protestant and my husband is Catholic. Father Jim did a fantastic job in helping us include Catholic traditions into our ceremony, which was very important to my husband and his family. It was also the perfect blend of prayer and spirituality. He is warm and inviting, and helped us plan our day so simply. Father Jim offers many options to help customize the ceremony. He was extremely prompt in replying to our questions and giving us feedback to create our ceremony. Our family and friends were very impressed with him and we received many compliments. Most of all, Father Jim had a great sense of humor and emotionality that we had not found with other officiants. I would recommend him to anyone, and know you would not be disappointed.

Father Jim went out of his way to help me plan the perfect ceremony on short notice. My family and friends couldn't say enough good things about him after the ceremony. If I ever decide to renew my vows, I will definitely ask Father Jim to be a part of that celebration as well. Read less

Father Jim provided us with the most beautiful ceremony! We were so happy that he was available to officiate our wedding, as he had done a lovely ceremony for our very good friends a few months ago. It was important for some of our family members for us to be married by a Catholic priest, so even though myself and my now husband are not practicing Catholics, we felt incredibly comfortable with Father Jim and were honored that he could be part of our day. It was especially important that he was able to do our ceremony outside of a Catholic church. We love the message of his parish to welcome and accept ALL people. He made the whole process incredibly easy with his flexible ceremony options and prompt responses to our questions and feedback. To me, Father Jim provided us with the best combination of a traditional Catholic ceremony with a modern mindset. And he reads the ceremony from his iPad, which our guests thought was really cool!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Father Jim. He is such a wonderful man and he helped to make our wedding ceremony so special. Fr. Jim worked with my husband and I to create a beautiful custom wedding and happily honored our requests to include certain details throughout the ceremony. He was so patient with my many questions and requests and always responded to me quickly. We went to visit him at his church (St. Miriam's) prior to our wedding and it was so evident how many people he has moved and how many lives he has touched. He certainly left a beautiful mark in our lives. SO many of our guests mentioned to us what an excellent speaker Fr. Jim was and how beautiful the ceremony was. He certainly made a perfect day even more amazing. Thank you, Father Jim!

Father Jim really went above and beyond for us. He was very understanding compassionate and made us feel like he truly cared. I would recommend him to any bride wanting to get married. I have also attended his masses and they are always interesting and enlightening. You will not be disappointed! On a side note, having attended services, his baptisms are also very nice which maybe something to think about in the future. Thank you again father Jim!

Father Jim was very patient and helpful with us. He provided us with a diverse list of options, and helped us every step of the way so we never felt overwhelmed or lost. The result: We had the most beautiful wedding ceremony! We are so happy that he was available to officiate our wedding and he even traveled to our location, which was much further than he normally needs to travel! But he was very accommodating. He knew that it was important for us to have our ceremony on a beach, near the water, and that's exactly what we got! Our family wanted us to be married by a Catholic priest, and we felt incredibly comfortable with Father Jim and we were honored that he could be part of our special day. He made the whole process incredibly easy and his prompt responses to our questions were incredibly fast! To us, Father Jim is the best combination of a traditional Catholic ceremony and modern day priest! What a gift! Thank you, Father Jim!

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Father Jim. My husband and I were very fortunate to have had fantastic, professional vendors for all areas of our wedding, but Father Jim was probably the best person we worked with out of everyone. From the beginning he was so very accommodating - because of him, our ceremony was personal, beautiful, and meaningful. He was confident and knew what he was doing, but he also included us every step of the way. I loved that we had input as to what he said, the non-traditional readings, writing our own vows, etc. And because we didn't marry in a church, it meant a lot to our religious family members to have someone incorporate God into the ceremony. During the cocktail hour, Father Jim was the star - everyone, religious or not, wanted to talk with him!

Before our wedding day, I would have said that he was ideal since he is one of the only priests who will marry a couple outside of the church; however, after our wedding, I'd say he's ideal for that reason and so many more. Thank you, Father Jim, for making our ceremony so incredibly special.

Father Jim was able to arrange his schedule and find a way to celebrate our wedding even though he already had another event planned on the same day.
He really worked with us to make our wedding ceremony as personal as possible. And that really made all the difference for us as we wanted this event to be the reflection of our personalities.
He took the time to receive us to discuss our wedding together.
He was always there when we had a question before and after the wedding.

During the ceremony there was an incredible complicity that really helped us go over the stress of getting married.
Thanks to Father Jim, our wedding will always be a great memory.

As a couple who had no idea what to expect going into the process of finding an officiant for our wedding, Father Jim certainly exceeded our expectations. Despite the fact that he had another ceremony to attend after ours, he was totally focused, warm, and funny during our ceremony. Our guests loved his demeanor, and he took the stress out of the entire process for us.

If you're looking for an uber-responsive (never interacted with a priest who has a blackberry before), warm, and accomodating officiant for your wedding, you can't go wrong with Father Jim.

Thanks again!

Father Jim was timely with responses and made himself available to us if needed. All of the guests loved his personality and sense of humor at the ceremony. He was able to humorously make light of unplanned distractions- this strange knocking sound from behind one of the walls (which the bride, myself, did not even notice). My hubby and I recommend Father Jim to all brides to be!!

His passion was evident from our first meeting. I'm a non-practicing Catholic and my husband is Catholic, but seriously questioning the Catholic church right now. Father Jim spent an hour with us explaining his views and we both left the meeting knowing for sure Father Jim was our wedding Officiant!

After our meeting, Father Jim e-mailed us a package from which to choose every aspect of our ceremony, which turned out beautifully, and perfectly tailored to us. On the day of our wedding, his smile lit up the room & added to the Joy of our day - I think his smile was as big as ours & that was very comforting!

If you are looking for a warm, caring, professional officiant who provides an unforgettable ceremony (and eliminates all the stress in creating it) look no further. All of our friends and family were so impressed with Farther Jim's warmth and compassion that they assumed he was our regular pastor. They were also so impressed with our vows that they assumed that we (the bride and groom) wrote them. They were all shocked to learn, however, that we had only met Father Jim two months prior, at the recommendation of the Stroudsmoor Country Inn, and that the vows were one of several options provided to us by Father Jim.

Father Jim was professional from the start and was always pleasure to work with. He provided us with an entire booklet of options for the ceremony, guided us on length, and added any additional items not in the packet we wanted. He responded to our questions very quickly and thoroughly. And any reservations we may have had were gone when we attended a sunday mass at his parish. His faith and compassion were tangible and his congregation was the most inviting I have ever experienced. We could not ask for more, except that we wish Father Jim lived closer to our home in Brooklyn so we could attend his church regularly.

After talking to Father Jim for no more than 10 minutes we knew that he was the person we wanted to officiate at our wedding. His sincerety and commitment to ensuring that we received all the important things we needed, on this special day, became immediately evident. Father Jim listened intently as we described what we were looking for in our wedding ceremony. He made helpful suggestions from his experience in this area and never tried to dominate our plans - instead at every juncture he strove to accomodate our wishes. Father Jim is an extremely likable person who is thoroughly dedicated to providing the best and most professional wedding service, while at the same time, ensuring that all of the wedding couple's wishes are met. The wedding ceremony is probably the most important part of the whole day and for us Father Jim made it the most memorable part . . . when we look back on our wedding day, for us, Father Jim was the centerpiece. If you are looking for someone to officiate at your wedding who is professional, compassionate, and who will truly become an integral part of that day, then we can recommend no one more highly than Father Jim.

Father Jim - Diane and I would once again like to thank you very much for helping make our wedding so very special . . .

Father Jim made the process of planning our ceremony so enjoyable and easy while knowing exactly how to help us make it special and accommodate the style we were looking for. He is so flexible with all the ceremony options and it's obvious he has performed many many different types of ceremony because he doesn't just go through the same motions as if he's memorized it all and it's just another couple. He makes you feel so special while you're being married and was very good at making us feel at ease even though there were 120+ guests in attendance. He made it special, intimate, easy, enjoyable and unforgettable. It's obvious that he was passionate about what a huge part of our life we felt like he had become while marrying us. He knew what to do without direction, all we had to worry about was showing up and being in love!

My fiancee, now my wife, had contacted many officiants. All of them wanted either a large donation, mandatory classes that we would have had to pay for, join their church, or all of the above. All of them except one, Father Jim. We knew within 5 minutes of meeting with him that he was the one we wanted to marry us. As a matter of respect we attended a few services at his church. We figured it was the least we could do for someone who was so friendly and welcoming to us. We enjoyed it so much that we joined the church. The ceremony was held in the church in front of a small, very small, group of close family and friends. You would have thought it was a full house if you judged it by Father Jim's enthusiastic, joyful service. It was clearly obvious that he received joy and happiness at being the one to join us together. He was smiling just as much as we were. He wasn't just going through the motions. And more importantly, he was a very calming influence when the inevitable jitters, nerves, sensory overload, etc kicked in.

Father Jim married my wife and me in October, 2008. We were married in a restaurant banquet room, and he was willing to accomodate us. We found him to be very warm and honest, and we knew within 5 minutes of meeting him and "interviewing" him that he was the person to marry us. My wife and I weren't perfect candidates to be married in a Roman Catholic Church, so we thanked God when we found Father Jim. In fact, we were so impressed with him that we became parishioners of his Church, Saint Miriam's, in Blue Bell, PA. Yes, it's 26 miles from our home, but we look forward to attending Mass every time. If it were not for Father Jim, we would have gotten married with a Justice of the Peace in a sterile, government building. Yawn. We thank God for bringing Father Jim into our lives.

Father Jim has been a part of my life for over ten year I used to cut his hair until I moved away. Father Jim is a great friend that has been here for me all those years. You can just imagine the talks we have had. He listen to me talk about the dates i had with a boy named Henry so when i asked him to marry Henry on St. Patrick's Day 2007 he was more than happy. My great friend Jim united me with my best friend Henry. I could not have planned it any better. Father Jim is a special person to me and my husband and when we decided to have our two children Baptized this easter 2010 we asked him as well to do honors.

Father Jim was absolutely awesome! My fiance and I met him months prior to our wedding to discuss exactly what we were looking for. It was important to us that we meet the person that would perform our ceremony prior to our wedding to make sure his personality meshed with ours. It definitely did. Father Jim is down to earth, funny, and truly did a great job. He will work with you to make sure your ceremony is all you want it to be and more. He is responsive, helpful and honest. If my fiance and I had to get married again, we would still choose Father Jim!

We loved our officiant! One of the greatest things about him was that there are NO other Catholic Priests that I am aware of who are willing to perform a ceremony outside of a church, but Father Jim did. Father Jim was absolutely amazing, as he walked me through every step of preparing our vows and he made no mistakes on our wedding day! I am so glad we chose him for our wedding ceremony and I wouldn't change a thing. He drove 2 hours each way to attend our wedding! We were exceptionally pleased with his services.

Father Jim was amazing to work with and really made our ceremony very special. All of our guests commented on how unique and lovely it was and how great Father Jim was. It felt as if we had known him all of our lives and he is very sincere when he speaks. We loved being able to have our ceremony outdoors in nature as we wanted but with the spiritual and religious elements still included. Loved every moment!

Father St. James was a wonderful addition to our wedding. He put the perfect spiritual touch, yet Catholic feel into our wedding. Since we didn't get married in a church, I was worried that we might miss the mark on the religious part of our ceremony, but that was not the case at all! Father St. James was extremely professional and helped make our ceremony a huge success. Numerous people at my reception actually approached me, asking if he was a close family friend and how we had worked it out with the church to have a Monsignor bless our wedding. I think Father St. James is an absolutely perfect choice for any wedding and he helps personalize the ceremony to be special for any couple. He is extremely available and dedicated to what he does. It was a pleasure to have him part of our day.

Fr. Jim was fantastic. He has a great demeanor and speaking voice, and really knows what works well for ceremony, but allows the bride and groom to make choices about exactly what tone they want to set. We had many options for what to include. Fr. Jim was also always responsive to emails throughout the process.

During the ceremony, Father Jim truly made me feel as though he was my own parish priest who watched me grow from a little girl. I could almost just see the joy on his face and in his eyes as he united my husband and I in marriage. It seemed to mirror the joy we were experiencing. Prior to the ceremony, he was completely professional and laid back, which really balanced out my own type A personality. His responses to my unending questions were always prompt, and he has really helped to make things easier on my husband and I through handling the ordering of marriage certificates and such. I highly recommend Fr. Jim and would also like to extend to him my own personal thank you!

Father James St. George was a perfect fit for our ceremony. He was quick, not boring to the guests, and sincere. I was very pleased with his services and would recommend him to other brides.

He was very responsive to brides if you use email as a way of communicating. He is very quick to send you a note back with any questions, concerns or comments you have.

Father Jim was a pleasure to work with and was an excellent officiant for our wedding. He was fun and easy to work with and his years of experience were evidenced in the way he ran the ceremony. We received many compliments from our guests on the ceremony and Father Jim. My wife and I look forward to attending Saint Miriam's to hear more of what Father Jim has to profess and to learn from his teachings.
