I know that it's very difficult to find a Catholic church willing to do a ceremony later than the standard 2pm time, but we'd love to have an evening ceremony that will flow right into the reception. Other than St. Francis Xavier, does anyone know of a Catholic church with any later times? Thanks very much!

You can do a Friday evening at most Catholic Churches.

The Shrine of St. Joseph sometimes has later times available.

If you have your own priest or deacon that will perform the ceremony try St. Anthony of Padua in south city. Their Sat evening mass starts at 4 and is over by 4:45. The fee for using the church is steep bu worth it if you get the time you want. Also try St. Joseph's in clayton.

We are getting married at St. Mary of Victories Church, Downtown. The ceremony is on a Saturday. The chaplain there, Msgr. McCarthy, is working with us so much, it is amazing. He told us to choose our ceremony time! (We chose 2:30pm.) You can bring your own officiant, or he would probably do it for you! He offered to marry us, but I wanted to go with someone I already knew. Good luck!
