I’m so sorry this happened to you!  I would call and calmy explain that you’d like to be married outside near the church, elsewhere on school grounds, wherever they can accomodate you.

My understanding is that a Catholic priest can receive special permission to perform a marriage ceremony (or even a Mass) outside of a church building.

Given your connection to this church, I’m hopeful that they will be able to help.

Good luck!

Oh no!  Can’t imagine how you are feeling.  Perhaps if you call all the churches in the area there will be that one that is free for your day? Perhaps if you explain to them the circumstances they will overlook the six month policy?

Best of luck to you-I hope it all works out!

I’m so sorry! :(You said they left a message but have you talked to anyone at the church yet???

How “big” are the repairs? If it’s in another part of the church or something small maybe you can see if they will still let you have the ceremony there?

Do you still have any connections at the school that is directly connected to the church that can pull some strings?

If all else fails how about going on Vistaprint and making a free “business card” to mail out to your guests letting them know of a venue change. In this case I think a email + word of mouth will be totally appropriate!

Start calling other churches pronto, enlist the help of family, friends, coworkers (for referrals). There’s GOT to be ONE church in your area with a priest understanding enough to squeeze you in.

Best of luck!
