About Me


About REv Francis DUda

 I was ordained in 1963 after 4 years of postgraduate theology, for the Diocese of Cleveland where I worked as an associate pastor for over 5 years.  Then I joined the military as a chaplain.  In 1975 I obtained a Masters in Clinical Social work from Florida State University.

I have performed weddings in Ohio, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Texas and California. My wife and I have settled in lovely Carmel by the Sea, California.  We are the parents of two children. I am trained in marriage and family counseling and welcome couples with any pre-marital questions. I have knowledge of many vendors in this area and would be happy to make suggestions though my main focus is the ceremony and its proper execution.

I serve most often the communities of Carmel, Carmel Valley, Marina, Monterey,Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, North to Aptos and Capitola; and South to Big Sur.
