We are Pastor Dave (soon to be Rev Dave) and Rev Shari, ordained clergy with the Community Catholic Church of Canada. We have a ministry, not a congregation, and we would like to be a church to those who have no church.

We are available for weddings, funerals, baptisms — and more — throughout Durham Region and into the GTA, customized to you and your beliefs. We can do traditional or contemporary, long or short, non-denominational, or non-religious.

The bulk of our work is weddings. In addition to officiating, we plan weddings and we certify wedding planners. Our wedding work is at SandcastlesWeddings.com

Why would we choose to name our ministry Proverbs 31 Lifestyles? After all, our ministry is obviously not geared only toward women. Would you believe, Proverbs 31 was originally meant for a man? Not only does it detail the kind of wife a godly man should look for, but it also means he must be deserving of such a wife. Proverbs 31 has a very special significance to us. Back in 1973, we were high school sweethearts. That is also the year that a Mother’s Day sermon ignited a life-long journey toward being that couple described in Proverbs 31. We went our separate ways but were reunited in 2009, the P31 spirit still very much alive in both of us. In 2015, 42 years after our first kiss, we were married, and we’ve been living the Proverbs 31 lifestyle ever since!
