Priest Who Defied Bishop to Oppose Prop 8 Now Selling "Catholic Nuptial Masses" for $750



Geoffrey Farrow, the former Fresno diocesan priest suspended from his parish for defying his bishop over Proposition 8, has gone into the marriage business – including providing “union ceremonies” for same-sex couples.

... He offers a Catholic Nuptial Mass for $750, and a simple Catholic marriage rite or a secular wedding service for $500. “All of these wedding rites may be adapted for Same-sex couples,” notes the website.

In addition to the fees noted above, Farrow charges 75 cents per mile for ceremonies performed at locations more than 60 miles away from his Studio City base. The same mileage charge applies for rehearsals if held on a date other than the wedding day. “For locations beyond a 200 miles distance, please call to discuss travel, lodging and per Diem (meals, cabs/car rental) arrangements,” says an explanation of fees on the website. --California Catholic Daily
