I posted this in Legal & Religous but there is more traffic here. Were meeting our parish priest tomorrow night to fill in our pre-nup forms, I know it's customry to give a donation, but how much? Our pp is doing our pre-nup forms with us but a friend of the family will be marrying us in our parish. Thanks

Ooopsss..... :-8 I didn't realise you needed to give a donation at this point. We filled ours out with the pp afew weeks ago. It was the same prose who will be performing the service though so we'll be giving him a donation on the day, money for sacristan and any altar servers. If you are completing forms with a different priest I would give a 'luck penny', as a gesture and thanks for his time; it can take an hour. I would think €50???

As he is not the priest marrying us (who we will give a donation to on the day), I thought we should prob give something just not sure how much??

Hi Sharmon We're in a similiar boat. Meeting with the parish priest on friday evening to do this. We're actually getting married in a different church (my home parish). Was thinking we should give him something but really unsure about the amount.
