About

New Creation Abbey is a Benedictine Community and part of the Catholic Apostolic Church in North America (CACINA). As a CACINA Catholic community, we are part of a growing number of independent American catholic communities throughout the United States and Canada. Bishop Carl, Father Abbot, whatever you wish to call him, is a very personable approachable wedding officiant.


Bishop Carl is licensed to officiate weddings throughout DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Rhode Island, Delaware and Georgia. He would be willing to obtain additional licensure in other areas as well, if needed, ask him!

We will officiate weddings in any dignified setting, and participate with other Christian and non-Christian clergy as may be fitting and desired. For those of the Roman Catholic tradition, divorce is not an obstacle; annulments are not required. While we are Catholic in tradition, we will officiate ceremonies taking into account the sensitivities of many different faith and ethnic traditions and lifestyles.

    Bishop Carl was absolutely wonderful! The first time we met with him, we knew we wanted him to marry us - he is warm, loving and accepting. He gives hugs, not handshakes. Carl guided us through creating our wedding ceremony and helped us with our programs. He took the time to get to know us, gave a terrific homily, and we are very happy to call him our friend!

    Bishop Carl saved the day time and time again. He turly made our wedding day perfect. He put me at ease and was in contact throughout the day for spirital guidance as well as support. He fit in perfectly with my family and what we were looking for in an officiant. We were blessed to have had Carl do our wedding day. So if you want an amazing officiant with a wonderful and bubbly personality, Bishop Carl is your knight in shinning armor.

    Bishop Carl was wonderful during our preparation of our wedding day to include carrying out his responsibilities throughout the entire day of our wedding. He was a delight to have as our Bishop and I would recommend him for further events.

    Thank you,

    Michael R. Barne
