Father Callahan Was Awesome
Father Callahan officiated at our wedding in December and it was such a pleasure to work with him. He was very helpful, punctual and such a kind speaker. He even arrived earlier. We were blown away by his sermon and it made our Roman Catholic ceremony that much special. Our friends and family were delighted with the father too. They were deeply moved to tears. We're native Spanish speakers and he speaks Spanish fluently and he added a Spanish passage to the ceremony. We can't thank him enough!"Sent on 02/08/2019
