Father Christopher Richard

I am an Catholic Priest, of the Old Catholic Paulists, who is available to Officiate at Catholic or Christian Wedding Ceremonies in Albany, Saratoga, Lake George, Lake Placid, Upstate New York, or Western Massachusetts.


The Wedding Ceremony can take place at your Reception venue, a banquet hall or restaurant, a garden or park setting, or most other places of your choosing.


I accommodate those who do not belong to a specific church or denomination, but wish to have a Wedding Ceremony which is "Blessed in the Eyes of God".


Those who have been previously married are welcome; without an annulment.

I offer Wedding Ceremonies that range from a Catholic Non-Mass, to a full Catholic Mass, to a Christian Non-Denominational Ceremony. Most Ceremonies can either be indoors or outdoors.

Msgr. Christopher Richard was absolutely amazing! I really cannot say enough! He was extremely professional, caring, and detail oriented. He helped us plan the entire ceremony down to the minute, and his demeanor kept everyone calm and happy throughout. It is very clear that Msgr. Christopher Richard has a lot of experience officiating weddings, and is the best option for anybody wanting an unforgettable ceremony.

Upon meeting Father Richard, my now husband and I had no clue how to plan a wedding. Not only did Father Richard ease the burden of finding an officiant, he helped us plan the whole thing! He shared his knowledge with us, including how to stand and put on the rings during the ceremony, in order to make our wedding day flow smoothly! He talked to the best man and maid of honor in order to make sure they knew what was going on. For him, communication was key; he talked to my parents, met with my husband and I multiple times, and talked with the vendors beforehand! We are still getting compliments on the amazing ceremony! He helped make my day perfect. With Father Richard, you're not only getting an officiant, you're getting a friend with years of experience, and a helper that will ease stress and anxiety!!! He is an absolute must!!

Father Christopher Richard was wonderful! Such a nice guy and did exactly what we wanted and then some! Our wedding planner gave us wrong information or no information at all, and he stepped up and instructed what needed to be done and we couldn't appreciate that enough! Highly, highly recommended him!

As a fellow wedding professional, I knew Father Christopher before my wedding. Working behind the scenes I had a first hand look at how he works with couples and the venues - always doing a fantastic job. Professional to a T, friendly and caring. He responds to calls and emails immediately, and is always willing to answer questions and concerns even if they are not specifically about the ceremony..offering to help as much as he can and even designing ceremony programs for you!
As someone who is Catholic but wished to have a more casual ceremony Father Christopher was my first choice. Impressing Catholic family members as well as guests who came from less church going background. Father Chris is a dear friend so I may be biased but I truly feel that he is a great choice!

Monsignor Christopher Richard was wonderful to work with. He truly made our special day perfect! We are currently living in Buffalo, NY and planned the wedding from a distance. Msgr. Richard was very quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and was very flexible with meeting with us when we were in the area. He was very supportive and answered many questions regarding the marriage process as well as questions with wedding planning. He truly went above and beyond to make us comfortable and confident on our special day. We have received many compliments from family members about our beautiful outdoor catholic ceremony.

Msgr. Richard did a fantastic job as our officiant. We got married on 8/14 and he made all of us feel very comfortable and helped to calm any nerves that anyone may have had. He was professional, caring and funny. He was very prompt in returning emails and phone calls and was very easy to set up meetings with. After our rehearsal our families and wedding party were all talking about how great he was and were very pleased with our choice. He helped to make our day wonderful and we are so happy with our decision to have him as our officiant.

Thank you,

Brittany and Mike

Lovely ceremony and fabulous preparations. We wanted a ceremony in the Catholic tradition and Msgr Christopher Richard made our day so very special and memorable for us. All of our guests (Lutherans, Irish and French Catholics) took communion and enjoyed the readings we had chosen. Msgr Richard tied all the readings together with a beautiful summary and made it a day we will never forget, We highly recommend him.
