Could you priest still perform the ceremony? Did he leave the parish or the church in general?

I’m sorry you’re nervous. I understand. I did NOT want my parent’s priest to marry us cause he scares me. He’s very no nonsense. We are having a family friend who is a deacon marry us. And change is always difficult, especially about something that is important to you. Is there someone else in the area who could do it? Your priest might not be offended if you ask someone else to do it. In my experience, most want Saturday off anyway.

The important thing to remember is, it’s not about whose marrying you. It’s about you and your fiance making a commitment before God. Which you can do whether or not you particularly enjoy your priest. 

Good luck. I hope you find some peace!

Oh yes I understand how you feel completely (read some of my previous posts). Do you know where your previous priest has gone, could you maybe ask him to perform your wedding service at your church? At the end of the day we’re all only human and sometimes people just don’t gel well, no biggy. x
