  • Father Jerry was what we wanted and more. He made it exciting and fun, joked and didn’t allow it to be awkward, and that is especially hard since that’s me naturally😂. We had guest comment how amazing he was. He made the whole event fun and even added some special features to the event. I couldn’t have been more impressed and thankful. I loved it !!!
