“May I Have This Dance?: Canon Law and the Sacraments”

3:00 pm
to 4:00 pm

This session will address the preparation for, and celebration of, the sacraments through the lens of canonical principles. We will consider the role of parents, selection of godparents, challenges presented by emerging family structures and eligibility for the sacraments. Attention will be given to the RCIA including questions about prior marriages and reference to those who come from Eastern Orthodox churches. If time allows, pastoral solutions to difficult situations will be discussed. Questions are encouraged.
