Can A Catholic Priest Be A Best Man? by ojorich(m): 7:21am On Feb 21
So I have this very good friend of mine whom we've been very close friends right from childhood. While he went on to become a catholic priest, I went and studied in the university.

Now the problem is, my wedding is coming up soonest and I have plans of using him as my best man since we've known each other for long.

Does the Catholic church permits priests to be a bestman at a wedding ceremony?

Kindly move to FP for a wider view and opinions please

I'm not a catholic but I don't see anything wrong in that....best man role is usually for a single guy and most catholic priests are single.

Why don't you ask that your friend who is a Catholic priest and understand his church doctrines more than me and you?

Must you bring everything online even when offline answers are the real deal

Catholic priests are not single. They are all married. Make the guy look for someone else.

Fundamentally, it's impossible.
The roles of best man and chief bridesmaid traditionally signify that you're next in line.

Therefore, since your friend would not marry, he shouldn't serve as your best man.

If Catholics priests can join men and women together during weddings, they can as well be bestmen and chief bride maids for others.

Ask your best friend if such is allowed in the church.
