Were you married outside of the Catholic Church?  Would you like to have your marriage blessed by the Church?

This is called the marriage convalidation process, and the Church is here to help.

Couples may find themselves in this situation for a variety of reasons.  It may be that a Catholic entered into marriage outside the Church and did not realize that the Church asks us to marry in the Church.  Alternately, it might be because one, or both parties, was not free to marry in the Catholic Church due to a previous marriage or because he or she was awaiting an annulment. No matter the situation, now is a great time to explore the convalidation process.

Consider this your invitation!
