The Marriage Cases Ministry provides assistance to reconcile marriages that may not be considered valid by the Church.
A frequent reason people stay away from Mass and/or the Sacraments is because their marriage may not be recognize as valid by the Church. Whatever the reason you happen not to have been married in the Church, the feeling of being excluded from the Sacraments can be heartbreaking. For some couples, this situation can be resolved by calling for an appointment with a priest or deacon to discuss their marriage status within the Church. Some may need a canonical dissolution or declaration of nullity while other may just need a co validation. Our priest or deacons can answer your questions about this and, if necessary, help you through the process. If you are in either position, we encourage you to make an appointment or contact Deacon Dan Murphy (528-1622 x104), Mr. Bill Frantz (688-3155), Fr. Del Staigers (688-3144), or Fr. David Doseck (688-3148). We care.
