Receptions & Rehearsals

We will always try our best to accommodate your rehearsal needs. Please review the following:

Please note that the time and stipend structure calls for us to be on-site for no more than 30 minutes for scheduling purposes. If we start the rehearsal any later than 30 minutes from schedule, an additional fee will be requested.

Please note that any rehearsal over 25 miles from our parish will also be assessed an additional mileage fee and no rehearsals are accepted where the distance, or the timing with traffic, will exceed 45 minutes in one direction.

We allow ourselves a ten minute margin of travel error since rehearsals normally do not start promptly and being right on time is not normally an issue, unless otherwise noted.

Rehearsals on Fridays are placed secondarily to Wedding Ceremony bookings to allow every couple the opportunity to have a priest present for their special day. We will make every effort to accommodate a rehearsal request, even when we have a wedding booked, or we will try to arrange for someone to ‘stand in’ for the primary officiant such as one of our deacons or a wedding planner familiar with us.

Please also recognize that for most weddings, having the celebrant attend in person is not needed and it does not necessarily make the ceremony flow much better. The main reason for having the celebrant present is for complicated weddings, odd or complicated movements or ceremonies, or one where there is no wedding planner engaged. A wedding Planner may “stand in” for the Celebrant and negate the need for most venues. Please consult with your venue, and inquire of our thoughts, prior to making a request.

AFTER your wedding date is confirmed and on our calendar, please book/schedule your rehearsal separately from your wedding to ensure it is scheduled appropriately to the correct priest. To request a rehearsal booking online, please click here.
