About Fr. Jonathan Gray

Father Jonathan Gray

... married my husband Kyle and me in January. We cannot say enough wonderful things about him. He took the time to learn about us as a couple, and genuinely cared about how our ceremony was going to go. He’s very organized and had many options to choose from so that we could create our own wedding ceremony that fit our personalities, and even incoporate special readings that meant a lot to us. Our families and guests told us that it was the most heartfelt ceremony they had ever been to! Father Gray has many years of experience and advice that made our day so special. He did a wonderful job and everything went perfectly. We highly recommend choosing Father Gray as your wedding officiant!!!

Fr. Jonathan Gray is a priest in the Progressive Catholic Church (link to website is here: https://mypcc.org/ ).
He will typically meet with a couple several times prior to the wedding date in order to get to know them, and so that they can get to know him. During these meetings, discussions often include such things as how, where and when did the couple meet, what drew them together, what keeps them together, what are their goals for their future, what are their views on marriage, etc. It is also during these meetings that the couples discuss the type of ceremony they want; what readings they would like, who they would want to do the readings, if they would like to write their own vows and other 'tweaks' to the ceremony to make it as personalized and meaningful as possible. With these meetings, Fr. Jonathan is able to help couples feel more comfortable, ready, and relaxed for their wedding and for their marriage. Fr. Jonathan Gray can officiate at interfaith, same faith, same gender and vow renewal ceremonies. Couples who have utilized Fr.

    Fr. Jonathan is the Best!!!

    Fr. Jonathan did a beautiful job as our officiant. We received so many compliments from our guests on his candor, wit, and positivity throughout the ceremony. In the months leading up to the ceremony, we met with him three times in person and once over the phone. We live out of state, so he was extremely flexible with our meeting times. He is so easy to speak with and made us feel comfortable and excited for the big day. From a logistics standpoint, Fr. Jonathan is so knowledgeable and experienced with how the ceremony and marriage license work. He answered all of our questions, and gave us his informed opinion about different ceremony rituals/how the ceremony can flow, while still giving us the authority to make the final decisions. Overall, it was a beautiful ceremony performed by one of the kindest people my husband and I have ever met. I can't recommend Fr. Jonathan enough!!

    Could not have asked for better!

    Father Johnathon is a gem. He not only did a great job in delivering our ceremony speech and handling all paperwork, but is an incredibly passionate man with a lot of heart who made us feel very at ease. He was very prompt with all communication and was very flexible in meeting with us, which we really appreciated because we live far away. Father Johnathon was more than willing to travel to our venue which was over an hour from his home.

    I would recommend him without hesitation for anyone wanting to have a Christian centered ceremony. Our photographer and DJ both commented after the ceremony how great of a job he did. Thank you Father Johnathon. You will always have a special place in our hearts for being at the heart of our special day. God Bless!
