program question

So we are doing our programs through a seller on Etsy, and I had a few questions on the wording.

First, if it is a Catholic mass (thus, Catholic priest), is he listed as "priest" or "officiant" or does it not matter?

Also, what is the proper order for listing parents, grandparents and bridal party. Anyone else I am forgetting??

Thanks!

    I would say "Officiant"- Rev. So and So

    I listed my parents, then grandparents, followed by MOH and BM, ending with BP.

    Don't forget your ring bearer and flower girl, soloist (if having one) and organist/pianist.

    GL!

    Duq is right. Officiant, then list him as Rev so and so.

    You would do your parents, his parents, your grandparents, his grandparents, MOH, Best Man, BMs, GMs. Females before males.

    I am also going to list my reader(s) on the programs b/c I think they are also an important part of the mass.

    I had a singer and listed her as a Soloist. Vocalists would work.

    Ok, back to the priest though. He goes by Father George, not Reverend....does that change anything?

    No, his proper title is Reverend, so you want to write it formally. Kind of how your mom might go by Mary, but you'll list her as Mrs. So and So. KWIM?

    Unless he is a Very Reverend (like ours was).  If you are unsure as to what his title is, call the parish rectory.
