Celebrant Alumni Association Membership

Member Benefits

"First, let me express how grateful and delighted I am to be a CF&I Alumni Celebrant Association Member . The Alumni experience via Celebrant Facebook has been a very special gift in my life providing tremendous value. And the 2 Regional Celebrant Chapter leaders are superb. I've peeked in on a couple other celebrant and ministerial organizations and find CF&I's members to be 'world class professionals”. There is something about the way our members interact, support and express themselves that is transmissible and calls us to be better human-beings"
~ Celebrant Alumni Association Member: Jacqueline Smith-Bennett
