A member in good standing of the National Association of Wedding Officiants.

I was validly ordained a Roman Catholic Priest May 10,1980. As of 1987 I am a Bishop and Pastor of Good Shepherd Catholic Church with valid priesthood and valid sacraments. In Catholic theology the couple gives the sacrament to one another by their vows which the Priest blesses. I would like to meet with each couple, two or three times, which would be considered the pre-cana. The day of the wedding I will give you a church certificate of the marriage and there will be no problem in the future having children baptized. All of the marriages that I perform are both SACRAMENTAL and LEGAL.

I would be honored to bless your marriage before the Lord, in any type of traditional Catholic, spiritual, or contemporary ceremony that you choose that best reflects your love for one another and faith in each other.
I am happy to do traditional Catholic ceremonies, for those getting married for the first time, or for those who have been previously married and divorced, with no annulment necessary. I will also do spiritual or more personalized ceremonies reflecting you own beliefs. The general OUTLINE that I follow is: Greeting Opening prayer One or two reading from scripture, poetry or modern reflections Gospel Sermon on love and marriage Exchange of vows, either traditional or personalized Blessing and exchange of rings Unity candle or sand ceremony Medallion ceremony if there are any children from a previous marriage Roses to the mother and fathers Our father Concluding prayer Memorial to deceased family members, nuptial blessing Pronouncement "I encourage you to personalize the ceremony by picking out the prayers and readings; having people do the readings; adding music; writing your own vows; and any other personal touches. LET THE CEREMONY REFLECT YOU. THE MORE PERSONAL, THE MORE MEANINGFUL FOR EVERYONE."


In terms of INTERFAITH weddings with a Rabbi, the outline for the ceremony is:
greeting (Rabbi) prayer (Priest) Old Testament reading (Rabbi) New Testament reading (Priest) kiddish cup (Rabbi) vows (Priest) rings (Rabbi) unity candle (Priest) sermon (Rabbi and Priest) Priestly blessing (Rabbi and Priest) breaking of glass (Rabbi)


The fee or donation goes directly to the church and is all tax deductible for you. The deposit is $200.00 made payable to Good Shepherd Catholic Church, P.O Box: 725,Hampton Bays, N.Y 11946. The remaining balance is $300. The total cost, with meetings and materials is $500.00 (if there is a family or parish emergency anotherpriest of the parish would cover the wedding; no worries). I am available for weddings on all of Long Island, New York City, and the Northeast. Please call 631-728-2633 May this time of preparation and planning be less anxious for you because of my expertise being a Catholic Priest for over 30 year and the peaceful nature that our sessions will express to you and to your families.

May the LORD'S peace be with you. Read less

Father Robert was wonderful. Our service was extremely personal, and we discussed with him what we wanted and he was very accommodating. The Catholic Church doesn't accept outdoor marriages, and he follows their service so that worked for me because I wanted an outdoor wedding. We had rather unorthadox readings, poems, and he followed our Program just as we discussed. We were both widowed, and wanted to include a memorial to our late spouses for our children, having them light the candles as part of the ceremony before we walked in, but not mentioning it until later on, and he did everything we asked. Our guests will talk about his sermon and our beautiful ceremony for years to come.

My daughter was married by this man on May 10th, 2014. The whole ceremony was a farce. He claims to be a Catholic priest and dons a Bishop's wardrobe for the ceremony. The first and second readings were all messed up. I was suppose to read the second reading. The grooms mother was suppose to read the first. Unfortunately, the grooms mother made a mistake and read the verses from the New Testament, which was my reading, instead of the Old Testament. I discretely pointed this out to him while the grooms mother was reading what I was suppose to be reading. He waved me off and motioned he'll take care of it. After the grooms mother finished, his idea of taking care of it was calling me up to the microphone for the second reading. In front of 200 people I had to make a statement that I had no reading because the grooms mother just read mine. He should have skipped over it. Instead he chose to embarrass me. After several conversations with this man about the Unity Candles, one conversation, 5 minutes before the ceremony, he blatantly disregarded everything that was discussed. The two mothers were suppose to light the two smaller candles and pass them onto the bride and groom to light the one large candle, thus UNITING them as one. It's about family! He decided he was going to light the two smaller ones and give them to the groomsmen to hold while he gave a sermon. The candle wax was dripping all over the men. After he finished speaking and there was barely any candles left he handed them to the bride and groom to light their candle. Thus leaving the mother's out of the Unity. He gave a speech about himself and used the wedding ceremony as free advertising for anyone who needs counseling he's the guy! I have read that he has been thrown out of the Catholic church and has shortened his last name. He is not recognized by the dioceses of NY! If you don't care about your ceremony - Use him. My daughters video is a farce. He ruined the whole ceremony!
