I am Father A. Michael Mayhan, “Father Mike”, from A Wedding Priest on Call Ministry. I am a retired married Roman Catholic priest. As an independent Catholic priest, I am no longer associated with any particular diocese in the Catholic Church. I have expanded my personal ministry to reach out to people of all faiths and beliefs. Because of my background in the Catholic Church, I have a special understanding of the needs of those who are unable to solemnize their vows formally in the church because of a previous marriage situation, or who might desire to celebrate their vows in a special location or place not approved by the church. I am more than happy to speak with you about your options in this area, and to provide services which will reflect the traditions and customs in which your were raised.
The “Honorarium Fee” is merely intended to compensate for the time that I spend away from my
family, and to defray from the expenses I incur in travelling, planning, preparing and celebrating your
Sacraments cannot be sold or bought. All of the Sacraments are free gifts of grace established by Christ
for the salvation and holiness of those who receive them.
Jesus alone paid the price through His Suffering, Death and Resurrection. Nothing can ever truly
compensate for the cost of ministry, other than the blessings it bestows on the people I work with.
I want to make this very clear, this is not a fee for services rendered. This may sound like a fine point,
but this is very important.
Above all else, this is the ministry that Christ gave to me at my ordination,
and so it is not, nor will it ever be a business.
What if this is more than I can afford?
Since this is a ministry, and we are discussing the celebration of a Sacrament, no person or
family should ever feel that they cannot call me simply because of the cost.
If the offering is beyond your means please let me know, we’ll work something out!
I will never turn you away because you cannot afford the ‘customary’ offering!
What is most important to me is that you have God’s blessing at your celebration, and that you
feel His love in your hearts and grow in holiness of life.
Call or TEXT me for more information. I customize each celebration to your wishes!
