Memorial Service and Prayer Intentions

Dear Friends;

 

As you know, we are in a difficult time.  The Covid-19 (Corona virus) has taken over our normal routines and we are forced to limit our human contact with each other.  Hopefully, with proper precautions and the Grace of God this will be be limited and short lived.

 

Memorial Service for your               Loved Ones

I will bring everything for the service  either at the Funeral Home or at a location you choose and offer a very meaningful and prayerful service for your loved one who has passed on.

Prayer Requests:

 

Text me (210-452-7627) your personal prayer intentions for you and your loved ones.  They will be remembered in my daily prayers. 

I will personally respond to every text received!

I have you and your families in my prayers always.
Your prayers are my prayers.

"Welcome!
 
I pray that the peace of God will be with you as you explore this site.  
Many who come here are searching for a Catholic Priest or a Christian Minister who is compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental, charitable, and most important of all willing to assist them in their need.
My years of experience in the Institutional Church of Rome has too often revealed occasions where good people in difficult situations were turned away by the Priest. I have seen these persons pushed away from the Church, from God, and from any sense of community, true peace, and happiness.
I am a Catholic Priest who understands what you may have experienced, and I am excited and eager to assist you with your pastoral and sacramental needs.  
All Catholics who approach a Catholic priest for any sacrament, or help of any kind should be welcomed and listened to with kindness.

Credentials:

  • Countless weddings since my ordination on May of 1977

  • 15 years as an active Missionary Catholic priest

  • 29 years as an Independent Married Catholic priest 

  • Licensed in every state to officially legalize weddings

  • Blessed with being on multiple
    vendor lists (unsolicited) 

  • Also Non Denominational or Civil Ceremonies

VIP:

If you do not feel that you are being welcomed or treated kindly by your local priest or parish, I assure you that I will treat you with kindness and acceptance – nonjudgmental.

Fr Mike
           Formal Home Blessing by a Catholic Priest!
("Peace be with this house and with all who live here. Blessed be the name of the Lord.")
If you are moving into a new or existing home and/or are experiencing any issues or harmful forces, it is highly recommended that you have your home formally blest by an ordained minister or Catholic priest.
A formal blessing of the home is reserved by the ordained ministry especially in confronting issues that are beyond your control.
                 Call or Text Fr Mike at anytime (210-452-7627) 
As a Catholic priest, I will bless each room with Holy Water and bestow special prayers of the Church asking that the peace of Christ rule in your hearts and homes.    I will accommodate your schedules!

           A True Blessing!!

Father Mike was a true blessing to my now-husband and I. As a couple who lives 400 miles away, Father Mike was more than accommodating when it came to communication via FaceTime, phone call, or e-mail. He was diligent about making certain that everything we wanted included in our ceremony was not only included, but was personalized for a couple of different religious beliefs. Adding the lasso to our ceremony was extra special to us. Father Mike was a true blessing to us on our special day.

❤️


Thank you for conducting our ceremony and joining Justin & I as we completed the blessed sacrament of matrimony. It was a wonderful day & we’re so glad you were able to safely join us after the rain storm you drove through.

 ❤️

Thank you so much, Father Mike! You & yours are in our prayers as well. We cannot thank you enough for being there for us yesterday. The ceremony was beautiful. We’re very happy and very blessed. Thank you! ❤️❤️

Father Mike was so sweet and communicative. Since the first time we spoke to him my husband and I knew he was the perfect priest to officiate our wedding.

 

He always reassured us with his kind words before our wedding and even after our wedding. Our ceremony was perfect and special, we would definitely recommend him to anyone!

 

Thank you for your time Fr Mike.

  Very Flexible, Super Professional and                                      Understanding!!!

 

My husband and I decided to get married last minute and father Mike was very flexible! My dates changed at least twice along with locations, and the ceremony started late due to hair/photographer showing up late and Fr. Mike was super professional and understanding through the whole process!

 

Would definitely recommend him to everyone! I was very nervous about hiring someone I’ve never met in person, but he went above and beyond to make me comfortable.  Thank you very much Fr Mike!

         Father Mike is the Greatest!!!

We decided to move forward with Father Mike for our wedding in April. Father Mike was amazing to work with and so kind. He reassured me throughout the planning process and answered my many questions kindly and quickly.

 

Father Mike did a fantastic job on our wedding day, even with it raining on us! He kept his cool and made everyone feel at ease. I can not recommend him enough. Father Mike is a genuine and kind soul who loves love and makes your day just feel that much more special.

 

If you are considering him, please give him a call. He is definitely one to book!



God bless you,❤

   Father Mike is an Amazing Priest!!

Father Mike is a blessing to this mother of the bride. He stayed in contact with the bride and groom through FaceTime helping them plan the ceremony and making them feel as if he had known them all their lives.

 

During the ceremony he made all the guest feel welcome while also making it so very personal to the couple. I can’t say enough good about this priest and we were so very fortunate to have found him.

 

He will always be in our prayers and look forward to meeting up with him again.

❤❤

Dear Father Mike;


It was such a pleasure to finally meet you in person and I want to thank you so much for making Cameron and Walker’s wedding so special and personal.
It was as if you had known them their whole life.

(Also we had several guest who said they would become Catholic if they had you as a priest  )

Please know that we will keep you in our prayers as you bring joy to so many more couples.
May health and happiness be with you for many many more years to come.

From the bottom of my heart thank you❤❤

     Catholic Marriage Blessing!!!

My wedding took place Dec 05, 2020 in San Antonio TX. After 14 years my husband finally were able to get married with the blessing of the Catholic church and that is thanks to Fr Mike.

 

This year alone has been extremely stressful and being we live out of state and getting married in San Antonio TX we knew that taking flights throughout the year would be hard and unfortunately some churches were asking for us to fly in since we weren’t members of the church but that really wasn’t an option.

 

I was worried I might not be able to get married with the blessing of the church until we found Fr Mike and read everything he has to offer by him going to you to marry you.

 

From day one he was great and once we agreed to have him marry us he stayed on top of everything up until the wedding day. I highly recommend him and had a few guest ask how I was able to find him because he did such an amazing job. I assure you he will not disappoint he was great!

   A Wedding Blessing that will be Cherished Forever!!!

We had to cancel our wedding blessing with Fr. Mike twice in 2020 because of the COVID pandemic. Then one beautiful sunny day in April, we had the opportunity to go to San Antonio and I figured I would reach out to Fr. Mike and try to arrange something on a whim.

 

Fr. Mike responded within 15-20 minutes and we planned a blessing ceremony at the Alamo three days later. It could not have gone any better and we could not be any happier with the blessing Fr. Mike performed.

 

Fr. Mike was even kind enough to give our granddaughter and 2 little dogs a blessing of their own.

 

Thank you again from the McEwan family. God bless you Fr. Mike.❤❤

         Father Mike is Wonderful!!

What a beautiful blessing to have had Father Mike as our officiant for our multicultural wedding. He was able to beautifully tie the Catholic sentiments into the personal touches to beautifully mend our ceremony following the Hindu ceremony.

 

t was so important to our parents to have a Catholic priest and to find one that was willing to marry us outside the church and following a hindu ceremony to please both sides of the family was beautiful and progressive!


It was also so nice to have Fr Mike work with us and be adaptable to the weird times during the pandemic as to be available over text and FaceTime whenever we needed! 10/10 !!


God bless you,❤

            The BEST Officiant!!!

Fr. Mike was the perfect choice for us! We wanted to have a "Catholic" wedding but didn't necessarily want to get married in a church. He was able to do a Catholic ceremony at our outdoor wedding and it was just what we wanted. He was also very easy to get in contact with and would always respond to emails and texts right away.

We couldn't be happier about our decision to make Fr. Mike a part of our special day!

People at our wedding are already asking for his name to use at their wedding one day!💕

            Unforgettable Ceremony!!!

                

"My bride and I are of mixed religious backgrounds and ethennicities. Father Mike was able to bridge those backgrounds seamlessly to deliver a ceremony that was unforgettable for the both of us. He was always accessible, either by text, email or phone; and spoke with us a number of times before the wedding to make sure that he understood what we were asking, and even more importantly that we understood the commitment we were undertaking. 

He made recommendations for the scripture readings and walked us through the full ceremony prior to the wedding. During the wedding itself, his reflection on the scripture reading was incredibly poignant and resonated with us and our families. During the reception, our guests repeatedly stated how wonderful the ceremony was. "

We would recommend Father Mike to anyone and everyone.

 

"Thank you very much Father Mike. You really helped make yesterday really special for us. The ceremony was so incredibly memorable. 

We will keep you in our prayers always. We will always remember your blessings and what you’ve done for us."💕

          A Big Thank you!!!

Fr Mike,

Levi and I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for taking the time and the risk of performing our small ceremony. We know these are uncertain times, and we so appreciate you joining us together on our wedding day.

What you did for us, officiating the marriage of a gay couple with the rights of the Catholic church, would have been monumental under the most ideal of circumstances. As a young gay man, I felt such sadness as I certainly never thought this would be possible for me. The fact that you also found it in your heart to perform the ceremony in the midst of a global health crisis is beyond words, and we are so grateful.

Thank you for celebrating love in all forms, especially in the time of COVID. I know that our family will never forget your kindness, and that God’s love shines through men like yourself. We feel so lucky to have found you.

With love and many thanks,
Jimmy & Levi

         Fr Mike Is So Awesome!!

Fr Mike was so patient with us as February was an extremely busy month for us. He listened to our ever need and then delivered flawlessly! He drove an hour (or more) for our evening ceremony, in the pouring rain, out in the country & basically made it happen in less than an hour!

He kept in touch a few times a week prior to the wedding to ensure everything was going well, gave perfect descriptions of his plans, was very thorough and detailed in each vow ceremony to choose from. He was very kind, considerate, understanding, and is super compassionate.

His deliverance was impeccable and vows were beautiful! We loved him! We would absolutely, without a doubt, recommend him for your ceremony...100%!

It is I who should be thanking you.  My family could not stop talking about how special you made our celebration.  You are such a special and anointed man of God.  It was a pleasure meeting you.

I came home and told my husband what an extraordinary experience it was.  We are going to speak to our daughters about getting our grandsons baptized as it has been weighing on our hearts.

You will be in our prayers.

Again, thank you for such a special celebratory mass.

      Father Mike is Amazing!

 

We can't thank Father Mike enough! I really wanted to have a religious ceremony but since we didn't get married in a church, we found it difficult to find someone. Until we came across Father Mike! He was extremely responsive from the moment we contacted him. We knew right after the first meeting that he was the perfect officiant for us! He guided us through the catholic ceremony and listened to and respected all of our wishes and changes, and was always following up to make sure he was prepared. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect, and went off without a hitch. He was the perfect amount of serious, warm, funny, and we loved how his homily tied in with the readings we chose. We couldn't be more thankful to Father Mike. We would highly recommend!!

      Very Much Appreciated!!!

"Thank you Father Michael.  We just arrived back from our honeymoon yesterday afternoon.  It was a wonderful time, although we changed our plans a bit to travel to New Zealand for 9 days to avoid the fires along the Australia coast.  We'd never been to New Zealand, which is breathtakingly beautiful, so it was an unexpected treat for us.

 

We very much appreciated and enjoyed your celebration of our marriage.  We especially liked that you inserted some personal commentary on what you'd gleaned - correctly! - about our different personalities, and I'm glad that we could include members of both of our families in the readings and the signings of the marriage documents.  Thank you for walking us through the ceremony at the rehearsal the day before, although I'm afraid my dad forgot his part in handing me over on the actual day.  I don't think anyone but Ed and I noticed though, so it wasn't a problem.  

 

We appreciate your continued prayers and support of our union, and are grateful that we chose you to help us celebrate our wedding.

 

Sincerely and with many thanks,💕

Thank you Fr. Mike for performing blessings over both of my daughter's Sweet Sixteen celebrations (2 different occasions). The service was excellent! He always takes his time to meet with the family beforehand to know exactly what you want. Given the opportunity again in the future, I would hire him once more!

Thank you so much for making my daughter's day more than just a party, but a celebration of her faith and love of family and friends.  We appreciate you keeping our family in your prayers.  We will do the same for you, Father Mike. "

Catholic Baptisms

Quinceaneras

5000-425x282-Catholicbaptism.jpg

 

I am Reverend A. Michael Mayhan,  "Father Mike",  from A Wedding Priest on Call. 

 

I am based in San Antonio, Texas. I am a fully ordained married Catholic priest who was ordained 44 years ago. Within those years, I requested and was granted laicization to marry. I have a loving wife and three grown daughters.

 

I believe that the door to salvation is always open. My mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus Christ by reaching to those who seek truth and meaning in their lives.

 

My mission is to go out to those who are disenfranchised from the church, or for one reason or another, have left the church altogether and to those who are unchurched but seek a spiritual blessing on their lives.  

 

My mission is to offer the power of the Holy Sacraments conferred on me through the sacrament of Holy Orders.

 

I open the door to listen and be compassionate as we walk together in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

 

Along with this special ministry, I am also available to celebrate uplifting and joyous services for any couple respecting their desire for either a Christian or non-Christian celebration.  In my 38 years of priestly ministry, I have celebrated many kinds of religious events, weddings, baptisms, funerals and anniversaries, and I have a very good understanding of the need to project a professional and caring attitude toward the bride, groom and their guests.

 

Therefore, for those wishing a religious ceremony,  I will gladly perform:

 

 Catholic, Christian, Non Denominational, Traditional, Non Traditional Weddings, Semi Relgious, Same Sex ,Vow Renewals, Quinceaneras,  Private Catholic Baptisms  and Home Mass at your choice of location.

A Catholic Wedding Ceremony can be a beautiful experience. Some couples wish to have their ceremonies outside of the Catholic Church grounds in a hall, park or even on the beach.   In most cases, the Priests from their parish will not be able to do this.  Some couples are interfaith or have been divorced or never confirmed, so they may not be able to get married by the Catholic Church due to Church law.

Because of my background in the Catholic Church and being a Catholic Priest, I have a special understanding of the needs of those who are unable to solemnize their vows formally in the church because of a previous marriage situation, or who might desire to celebrate their vows in a special location or place not approved by the church. 

 

If you are divorced or marrying someone who is, or if you no longer attend Church but still identify yourself as Catholic, I can help. I will conduct weddings based in all the major Christian traditions as well as non-religious and civil ceremonies.

 

I am open to any type of service which reflects your personal desires and traditions. It will be important for us to meet together before the service to plan your celebration, and to make sure that I am aware of any special needs or desires you might have.

 

Sometimes more than one meeting is necessary, and I am more than happy to meet as many times as you think necessary.

With over many years of pastoral experience, I have helped countless couples plan and celebrate meaningful and inclusive services.  Because of my background in the Catholic Church, I have a special understanding of the needs of those who are unable to solemnize their vows formally in the church because of a previous marriage situation, or who might desire to celebrate their vows in a special location or place not approved by the church. 

Like all of my weddings, your wedding will be a top priority in making it meaningful and spiritual for both of you, your family and guests!

                                          Your Time, Your Place, Your Wedding!!

===============================================================================================

VIP:  SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER:

 

For couples who are Catholic (Bride, Groom or Both):  The ceremony I celebrate with you does not fulfill the requirements of the Catholic Church for a Valid Sacramental marriage.  The Roman Catholic Church will recognize your marriage as civilly legal and valid (you are married)!   The only way you can have a valid Roman Catholic marriage is to have your ceremony in the Roman Catholic Church fulfilling all their requirements. 

 

As an ordained Catholic priest, I will Bless Your Marriage, and I will complete and sign the County license at the conclusion of the service, since I am licensed in every state to authorize your marriage.  Plus give you a beautiful Certificate signed by me as an ordained Catholic priest that the ceremony was according to the Roman Catholic RiteThe International Council of Community Churches and all other Christian denominations will recognize your marriage.

Later on, you may or may not want to get your marriage CONVALIDATED by your diocese. Click the FAQ button for more information.

Many of the marriages I witness are between couples where one or both parties have been married before in the Catholic Church and while divorced, they haven’t secured an annulment.

The County Marriage License

The Catholic Marriage Certificate

         
      Video of a Wedding Ceremony
            Celebrated by Fr Mike
 
                             The Sacrament of Holy Baptism
                                                      
       Private Baptism According to the Roman Catholic Rite

1.       We do not regularly attend a Parish in the area, and we cannot find a Priest who will Baptize our child. We want our child to receive the sacraments of the Church. What can we do?
 
There are several options that are open to you. Most Roman Catholic parishes will require that you have at least some connection to them before they allow you to baptize your child. In many cases, the parish will require that the parents be married in the Church, or that they take part in lengthy sacramental preparation programs.

 

If you are open to doing so, seek out a parish where you feel comfortable, meet with the priest and explain that you would like to join the parish and that you have plans to have your child baptized.  If you still have parents or relatives living in this area who belong to a parish, ask them to speak to their priest about your request.
 
All Catholics who approach a Catholic priest for any sacrament, or help of any kind should be welcomed and listened to with kindness.

 

VIP:

If you do not feel that you are being welcomed or treated kindly by your local priest or parish, I assure you that I will treat you with kindness and acceptance – nonjudgmental.

A formal blessing of the home is reserved by the ordained ministry especially in confronting issues that are beyond your control.
