    Hi all!

    Just wanted to see if anyone had Father Jorge do their catholic ceremony in Playa? I was a little concerned to hear that the other English speaking priest in the area, Father Quinn, sorta rushes through the ceremony and can be a bit "blah". I'd love to know what anyone's experience with this other priest has been.

    Thanks!!
    Susan

      Hola brides,
      I'm resurrecting this post in the hopes of getting some feedback. Especially if anyone has worked with either one of these priests (Father Jorge Castaneda or the other one), their experience(s), and what they charged. I recently sent an e-mail in Spanish to the chapel, and someone finally replied today (in Spanish). My Espanol is a bit rusty, but my understanding is it's about $300 US for just the chapel fee for the Capilla Nuestra Senora del Carmen - not including the priest fee or to have the wedding conducted in English. I'm trying to plan this all without hiring a WC if at all possible, because we are just having a small ceremony and MAY have our parents along and possibly a few other family members. So if anyone could provide info on either of these English-speaking priests, that would be great!

        I'm shooting at the Capilla today. I'll make sure I get the name of the priest. I shot there a couple moinths ago and the mass was delivered in English and was good, well paced, a little dry. The priest who rushes I have not seen at the Capilla, he's usually at the other church. I'll post again after today's wedding.

            We had the Irish priest who has really rushed in the past. He was great, really relaxed and well paced. I think he gave up on the fast stuff. So I've seen both the English speaking priests and I think their both great. Much better than most of the people I see at civil ceremonies on the beach. I think it's a great choice. We had a big group (I'm bad with crowd estimations) and they packed the small church. It was a tight place to work but I have to admit it was kind of exciting to have a standing room only crowd.

              Hello!
              Padre Casta┬▒eda is great but Padre James is great too!

              Good Luck!

              Is Father Bernard Quinn the priest who conducts the wedding ceremonies at the Capilla at the Nuestra Senora Del Carmen?

                Thanks. Would you happen to know Fr. James hours? Rosa from Nuestra Senora Del Carmen (NSDC) told me he is not part of their church but he can do masses in English and can do them at the NSDC. She gave me his number but all I get is his voicemail.

                  Has anyone heard of Father John McCormick? I just found out the priest we met with in May - Father Jeffrey Jambon got transferred to the US! So now we are in search of a priest again :**( Our coordinator told us about Father McCormick. Please let us know if any of you have met him or had a mass done by him.

                   

                   

                  Thanks -
