If you are planning to be married, you should be aware of the following regulations:
* The Diocese requires one year's notification to the parish before your marriage. If two Catholics are being married, the marriage may take place in the parish of the bride or the groom. If they are being married in another parish, a letter of permission from their own parish is required.
* If a Catholic marries a non-Catholic and they wisht to marry in a ceremony other than that of the Roman Catholic Church, this is possible but requires permission of the Church. All other regulations must be met. A non-Catholic minister can be part of a Catholic ceremony.
* Pre-cana is required before marriage. If either party has been married before, whether Catholic or not, an impediment exists which must be remove by the Church's Tribual before they can remarry.
