    Exactly what we wanted!

    We were looking for someone to officiate our intercultural wedding, and we are so glad we found this church. I was raised in a white Protestant family, and my husband was raised in a Salvadoran Catholic household. We looked into getting married at his church, but they would not allow our dog to be in the wedding, which was a deal breaker for us. Since Roman Catholic churches won't let dogs in ceremonies in the church, and rarely make exceptions to have their priests perform marriages outside of a physical church, I had pretty much given up on finding a Catholic officiant, and decided all I could do was at least find an officiant that speaks Spanish. I searched online and found this church. Although Father Jason Lody was not available for our date, he connected us with his colleague, Father Julian Garcia. Father Julian was the best fit we could have asked for. A native Spanish speaker who is fluent in English, non-judgmental, willing to go to our venue, open to our ideas and what we wanted to include in our ceremony, and even if he is not Roman Catholic, the American National Catholic Church uses the same prayers, etc. Father Julian let us go as traditional or non-traditional as we wanted, and was happy to deliver the bible readings in both English and Spanish at our request. He was welcoming and kind every time we met him, and told us he would be there for us if we needed him before or after the wedding. I highly recommend this church!

    Highly recommended!

    Father Jason was an amazing officiant for our wedding. Professional, caring, and approachable. We were very happy that he was aware of traditional Filipino Catholic practices and incorporated these elements in our ceremony. He had an excellent homily and made our wedding truly memorable and perfect.
