Father Stephen Prokop M.A., M.S.
An Old Catholic Church Priest
Catholic Wedding Officiant
Saint Paul/Minneapolis, Minnesota

      

Congratulations
for finding the
love of your life!


Having performed over 500 ceremonies, I can draw upon my experience to help you plan your own unique ceremony and offer ideas and suggestions.

And be forewarned!
I believe weddings should be a joyous and fun-filled event; I do not have a serious or somber personality!

You may have your wedding at any location. You also compose your own ceremony, choosing not only the music you want, but also vows, prayers, blessings, readings - even the type of sermon you want (if you want one!). If you are divorced Roman Catholic, an annulment is not needed.

Some testimonials (more on FAQ & Photo Album):

 "Father Steve was absolutely wonderful. He was one of my favorite parts of my whole wedding!"

 "During the ceremony he captivated the crowd and used the perfect mix of seriousness and also interjected humor and happiness."

 "...kept the crowd interested in the ceremony. I have never seen anything like it!"

"... he was also this adorable little old man with an AMAZING sense of humor."

Set you hearts on the greater gifts.
I will show you the way
which surpasses all the others.

If I speak with human tongues -
and angelic as well -
  but do not have love,
I am a noisy gong,
a clanging cymbal.
 
If I have the gift of prophecy and,
with full knowledge,
  comprehend all mysteries,

if I have faith great enough
to move mountains,
  but have not love, I am nothing.

If I give everything I have to feed the poor
and hand over my body to be burned,
  but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient.
Love is kind. 
Love is not jealous,
it does not  put on airs,
it is not snobbish. 
Love is never rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not prone to anger;
  neither does it brood over injuries. 
Love does not rejoice in what is wrong,
  but  rejoices with the truth.

There is no limit to love's forbearance,
  to its trust, its hope, its power to endure.

Love never fails.

(1 Corinthians 12:31-13:8)
