Convalidating catholic marriage
Some dreaded a scolding by a priest because they had not been practicing their religion.At San Bernardino Catholic Engaged Encounter, we generally have anywhere from 2 to 5 couples on each weekend who are in the process of validating a prior civil marriage.
A Baptismal Certificate is required from both the husband and the wife.Completion of any testimonial or witness forms should be done in a timely manner.The couple should consult with the priest to see if he feels they need further counseling or can do so after a simple interview.Some couples comment that they had not been active and practicing Catholics when they married outside the Church.A Church marriage was not, therefore, a significant priority for them.Other couples indicate that they simply were in a hurry or felt stressed by various factors.Marriage in the Catholic Church seemed to be an additional complication.He instructed pastors and pastoral leaders to make “tactful and respectful contact with the couples concerned and enlighten them patiently, correct them charitably and show them the witness of Christian family life in such a way as to smooth the path for them to regularize their situation.”Reasons for not marrying before a Catholic priest or deacon vary.Many couples judge either that it was impossible to wed in the Church because of their circumstances or that the tribunal process would be too costly or lengthy.The couple who are celebrating their love may give small party favors to their guests at the reception, but no presents are exchanged at the ceremony. On the other hand, it's also appropriate to simply go out to dinner with a small group or even gather at one's home for a meal or dessert.The couple should be sure to inform their guests if the reception is formal or casual because many people may want to change attire between the church ceremony and a low-key reception.
