in need of a priest

Dear bhAgavathas,

I am happy to inform all of you that my wife, Madhuri, and I have just
completed building and purchasing a new home.  We are interested in
conducting a traditional grihapravEsham, and now seek help from all of you
in this regard.  

We have been working with Sri Narasimhan Bhattar of Sri Venkateswara Temple
in Malibu, who fixed a date of December 6.  He was planning to officiate,
but had to cancel because of some family matters that require him to
lengthen his stay in India. 

My wife and I have checked both in LA and in Pittsburgh for priests, to no
avail.  Consequently, we are seeking the help and advice from those of you
who may be knowing of a traditional SriVaishnava priest that can conduct
this function.  We would still like to have the grhapravEsham be performed
on the December 6, since several members of our family have already
purchased airline tickets to attend.

Please reply at your earliest convenience, so that we may work out the
details with the priest and his temple quickly.

Thank you.
