Universal Life Church vs. Universal Life Church Monastery

I have been looking for a place for my officiant to get ordained online and have come across Universal Life Church and Universal Life Church Monastery (themonastery.org). I have seen some people speak highly of the monastery on these boards, but I'm wondering if there is a preference? Is one legit and one not?

Thanks for your help!

PS I have already looked into the laws in my state and know it will be legal to be married by someone who was ordained online.

  • We used the Monastery, mostly since they had the NYC package which had all the paperwork the city required without a bunch of extra junk. I think it worked out to be cheaper too, and shipped very quickly. 

    As far as I could tell they are almost identical organizations and the Monastery spilt off after the orginal organization had some tax issues.
