I had the honor of having Fr. John preside over the Catholic portion of my inter-faith wedding. He stayed true to his (and his trusty assistant, Joan) word and worked with us to keep the wedding on schedule.

His sermon could not be more on-point than it already was and I received great feedback from many members in the congregation (Both Catholics and non-Catholics) on his sermon, as he was able to connect with the audience through his sense of humor and anecdotes.

In short, I'd highly recommend using his services.

Father John was recommended to is by a couple who have used him, and we are so glad we went with him, he put our ceremony together exactly how we wanted it. And it was perfect! He cracked some jokes and had our guests laughing and he was warm and enthusiastic with our readings and prayers. And very well spoken for our vows and ring exchange! Overall wonderful officiant!

I am so grateful we found Father John. My husband and I had our hearts set on a beach ceremony, although I was raised in a large Catholic family. Father John was a perfect find, as he is willing to do outdoor ceremonies and will only make them as religious as you want. He gave us a packet with different readings, vows, and unity ceremonies, and told us it was our wedding and we should do whatever we wanted, although he did make a few wise suggestions of some things that would/would not work well at a beach wedding. When I found a different reading I wanted to include, he very enthusiastically agreed. We were able to create a ceremony that had enough religious elements to make me and my family feel comfortable but without being too much for my husband. Afterward we had people of all different backgrounds tell us how beautiful the ceremony was and how much they loved it. None of that would have been possible without Father John's calm, good-natured, and respectful manner. He was absolutely perfect!

Fr. John Michael O'Sullivan was such a professional throughout our experience with him. he conducted the perfect ceremony for our style and even described an Irish Hand Fasting unity that was a unique way to bring the two of us together. He was humorous, kind of heart and really made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire experience. My husband works in the industry and has seen literally hundreds of officiants. He suggested Fr. John Michael and I am so glad that he did. We couldn't be happier!

Fr. John was great. He is fun and friendly. He makes you feel very at ease on the day of your wedding. He is very easy to work with. His wedding packet that he gives you helps you personalize your wedding. He will be at your ceremony before you arrive and he will tell you all you need to know then. You can make your ceremony as religious as you want.

Father John was the perfect person to conduct our ceremony! He was personal, funny, and just an overall happy person to be around. We only spoke with him a few times between booking him and the day of but everything went off without a hitch. He called us a few nights before to see how we were doing and to check if there were any ceremony changes. Then on the day of, he arrived early and hung out with our families and bridal party which definitely helped us to feel more at ease and less nervous! He did a great job!!

Performed a short, sweet, simply perfect ceremony. We got so many compliments after the ceremony about his vibrant personality, but utter professionalism. My only negative comment is that he did not come to the rehearsal day, since I was told by his receptionist he does not do the rehearsal. All turned out perfect though.

After seeing Fr. John officiate some of our friend's and family's ceremonies we knew we had to have him for ours. He gives you so much to work with and is willing to add anything to make the ceremony truly your own. We absolutely loved his sense of humor.

Father John was wonderful! He provided a lot of options for our ceremony and we were able to make it exactly what we wanted. We were both raised Catholic but aren't practicing, so he brought a Catholic and religious aspect to an otherwise civil ceremony. He is also very charismatic and funny- which our guests loved. We received many, many compliments on the ceremony from our guests. I would highly recommend him!

Father John was EXCELLENT! i have no religious affiliation but my husband is Catholic. He blended our beliefs wonderfully and let us design our wedding ourselves! He told us it was our wedding and that we could have it any way we want. Just the right amount of humor in the ceremony and still made it touching. Great guy!

Father John was amazing! From the minute we met him we knew we wanted him to be our officiant. We were getting married at the Crystal Point and he told us the ceremony should be about us and we could do whatever we wanted. He added a little humor to the ceremony which we loved. So many people told us how great our officiant was. We could not have been happier with his services!

Rev. John Michael did an excellent job officiating our ceremony on June 25, 2010. We had an outdoor ceremony at The English Manor. When first meeting with Rev. John Michael he gave us a packet filled with readings, variations of vows and ring exchange ceremonies. We used this packet to create a unique ceremony that represented us as a couple. The day of the ceremony, Rev. John Michael showed up early and joked around with us as we were waiting for the guests to arrive. He gave us a beautiful ceremony..exactly what we wanted and had discussed with him. We HIGHLY recommend him!
