I am an ordained Franciscan, Old Catholic Priest and serve as Pastor of Saint Miriam Parish & Friary in Flourtown, PA, in the suburbs of greater Philadelphia. 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 7th 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 1,200+ 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].

Instragram tips from Saint Miriam? Visit us Here!

Often my schedule fills rather quickly, but if I am unavailable, I am also able to gladly refer you tif possible, so that you will remain in very capable hands! 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 at http://www.mysaintmiriam.org/wp/weddings/

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

We are so happy that we chose Father Jim to officiate our wedding earlier this month! As we planned our wedding, and participated in pre Cana, it became evident that Father Jim is extremely compassionate and truly cares for the couples he marries. He is also available for counseling to ensure that couples stay married (the divorce rate in his parish is incredibly low).

Our wedding ceremony was beautifully tailored for my husband and me, with a little humor and great deal of love and affection. We received so many compliments from our guests on the ceremony, and many of our dear friends and family teared up during our exchange of vows (as did I!).

We will certainly keep Father Jim in our lives...and we'd certainly join his church if only it were a bit closer!

Monsignor Jim did an OUTSTANDING job with our wedding ceremony. From the start he was highly responsive, friendly, flexible, and professional. So many people approached us after our ceremony asking where we found him and commenting on how beautiful our ceremony was. We had a wonderful experience with him and his staff (Kathleen) and would highly recommend their services to any couple looking for a beautiful and personal ceremony filled with the love of God.

Father Jim was one of the best things about our wedding! Everyone absolutely loved him, including us! I can't tell you how many people came up to me to tell me how much they enjoyed the ceremony and the funny and heartfelt moments Father Jim added. Due to the rain, we had to move our ceremony inside last minute and he was able to weave jokes about the weather seamlessly into the ceremony that made us all laugh, and I so appreciated that. It was such a pleasure getting to know Father Jim and working with him, we knew we were in great hands from day one! If you are looking for someone special to marry you, stop your search now and contact Father Jim! We feel so so lucky that he married us :)

Father James St. George is highly recommended by my new husband and I! He really was professional and got back to every email rather quickly. He was there for every question and concern I had regarding the ceremony and was flexible when it came to some last minute changes. He was funny and kept my family and friends laughing. A good time was had by all! If you are in PA and looking for a priest that will perform a wedding ceremony in or outside of a church, we MOST DEFINITELY recommend Father Jim. Thank you again, Father Jim!!

My family was dead-set on seeing me get married in a Catholic church (as I had made all of my other sacraments here, gone to Catholic school, etc.). However, when I dreamed of my perfect wedding, I dreamed of an outdoor ceremony. Obviously Catholic priests will only perform ceremonies in a church. I was so discouraged until I found Father James St. George. He was SO easy, SO accommodating and just understood everything we wanted in a ceremony. He was a calming force on the day of the wedding and even walked us through the marriage license procedure after it was all over. I would not recommend anyone else for this job - he was an absolute life-saver and truly gave us the wedding of our dreams and made our families so happy.

Father Jim is a kindhearted professional. Our outdoor city wedding could have been a complete disaster without him. Due to technical difficulties, our mics stopped working. We were competing with numerous noises from traffic, boats from a nearby river, onlookers shouting and honking to congratulate us, a nearby train... the list goes on! Father Jim seamlessly took unplanned pauses and got us close and intimate with our guests. He had us laughing and smiling at all the distractions instead of cringing at all of the things that weren't part of our ceremony plan. We are so grateful for our truly personalized wedding ceremony. Father Jim gives amazing resources, and he is an awesome resource himself. His professionalism and personality wowed us and our guests. We are so very thankful!
