As an ordained Roman Catholic priest, I was privileged to served the Church in several parishes in Central New York for over 35 years. Then, in 2004, Linda and I married! During the next two years, I received a number of requests to officiate at weddings. Because I can no longer represent the Church in any official capacity, I joined an organization of married priests called CITI Ministries, and also the International Council of Community Churches, which provides me with the license to perform weddings in the USA. Our CITI website www.rentapriest.com offers a summary of our origins, our history, and our goals, as well as a Directory of our members. Linda and I have been privileged to participate in many weddings at many different venues, indoors and outdoors, throughout NY State. We have helped Catholics and other couples with various religious backgrounds, or with no religious background, to have a wedding ceremony that uniquely expresses their commom beliefs and understanding of marriage, and in the venue of their choice. When possible, we prefer to meet with prospective couples so that we can get to know each other and to better serve them. We are happy to say that most of our couples have been deeply pleased with our services. I will be very happy to speak with you more about what services I am willing to provide as well as my availabillity for your wedding date. You can reach me at 315-338-1805, or 315-697-2257, or at tonytosti@twcny.rr.com Read less

Father Tony was such a pleasure to work with! He and his wife took the time to get to know us as a couple and made both my husband and I so comfortable on our big day. He was quick to answer all my questions up through the big day, and made it so easy to create a ceremony that fit us perfectly! I would recommend him to everyone.

Fr. Tony was so helpful throughout the entire planning process. I loved that we were able to meet "face to face" over skype throughout the process -- so much more personal since we were in two different parts of New York. He provided so much guidance and advice to have the perfect wedding ceremony. So many people commented on how beautiful it was and I have Fr. Tony to thank for that -- he guided us the whole way. Couldn't have asked for a better person to officiate -- would recommend him to anyone looking for a perfectly officiated ceremony.

We loved having Tony as our officiant. He has a very upbeat personality and is always smiling, which was a large part of the reason we hired him in the first place. Our ceremony was very nice and traditional. He is very well organized and provided some great examples of ceremonies. We are really glad we picked Tony to be our officiant.
