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 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].

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 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!

Msgr. Jim was nothing short of wonderful.
I am not Catholic, nor am I a church goer, so I was apprehensive that our officiant would be a priest. My concerns were far from justified, as Msgr. Jim, simply by his demeanor and presence, wiped them away the moment I met him.
My wife and I had an exhaustive list from which to choose for the way the ceremony would be conducted. I didn't know there were so many options. They range from purely religious, to practically secular in verbiage without sacrificing intent, purpose, or sanctity. My wife and I were able to choose exactly what represented our "style," for a lack of a better term. The Msgr. even allowed my wife and I to write prefaces to our vows.
However, what is far more important was Msgr. Jim's delivery. This was the first wedding that I have ever been to in which the ceremony was the highlight of the evening. Every person I spoke to during the reception (and there were 270 people there) commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, and that Msgr. Jim was amazing. In fact, several people said they would be going to his church. Let me explain why: While I was standing at the front of the ceremony, waiting for my bride to come in, I leaned over and bet my best man that she would be crying as she walked in. I was correct. It was a beautiful moment, and I was barely able to hold back my own tears of joy. During the ceremony, as Msgr. Jim was speaking our selected verses, and such, I was so moved by his warmth and kindness that the effort it took for me to hold back my tears rivaled that of those seeing my bride for the first time.
Again, I am not a religious person, but Msgr. Jim presents a love that can only be associated with the divine, and it drives me to be a kinder, gentler man. I hope you're fortunate enough to have him marry you. My only regret is that this is called a review. One does not "review" a man such as Msgr. Jim - one can only express extreme gratitude. Thank you, Msgr. +Jim!

Monsignor Jim was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I both liked him from our very first meeting. He made us feel extremely comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. My husband and his family are not religious, but my family is and Monsignor Jim provided the perfect balance for both sides of the family. Originally, Monsignor Jim said that he would not be working on New Years Day, but he did make an exception and came to our rehearsal, which we are extremely grateful for. The ceremony was beautiful from start to finish, even with one of my bridesmaids almost fainting. We would highly recommend Monsignor Jim to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

Father Jim was a spectacular officiant for our wedding. During the planning stages, Father was very helpful in his quick responses and his layout of options. Father Jim is very willing to customize the wedding to best fit your personality, as seen by the quantity of options given for readings/vows/etc. Father Jim was also very social which helped keep the groomsmen and groom relaxed right before the ceremony. Several people attending the wedding commented on the liking of the officiant. I would recommend Father Jim to anyone, no matter what your taste in wedding is.

Where do I begin... I was in search for a Catholic Priest who would preform an outdoor ceremony. With a lot of research, I luckily came across Father Jim! Once I read his website and saw that he had a John Lennon quote, that sealed the deal for me. He exceeded my expectations and preformed the most beautiful, sweet and touching ceremony! He was so flexible and easy to work with, very responsive and thorough, a kind soul with a passion and love for all. My fiancé and I were able to customize our ceremony to exactly what we wanted and Father Jim wrote out a draft for our final approval. On the big day, we felt 100% comfortable with Father Jim and he got us through our emotional and exciting ceremony with ease. Our family gave us so many compliments and said it was the most beautiful ceremony they've ever witnessed. We were so blessed to have Father Jim marry us. I HIGHLY recommend him if you are looking for a warm, kind and faithful priest who values your marriage as much as you do!

My husband and I got married on September 25, 2015 and we were so happy that we chose to have Msgr. Jim be the officiant for our wedding! We had an outdoor ceremony at Normandy Farm Hotel in Blue Bell, PA. Msgr. Jim was a great choice as he was able to deliver a beautiful ceremony that everyone raved about! My husband grew up Catholic so it was important to his family that there be a religious foundation to our ceremony. We liked the fact the Msgr. Jim was willing to work with you to have the ceremony that you wanted. When we met with him 2 months before our wedding we were able to talk through the different elements of the ceremony. Msgr. Jim certainly exceeded our expectations and was able to work with our 20-25 time constraint since we were having a Friday night wedding where the cocktail hour immediately followed the reception. We would highly recommend Msgr. Jim to friends and family as he truly is a master of creating an awesome ceremony!
