Hi, guys —

  • How do you get a marriage blessed between a Catholic and a Pentecostal?

My son married a non-practicing Catholic about six years ago in our Church. It was the first marriage for both. She has started practicing the faith again and wants to get the marriage blessed.

Dear WantsToKnow —

Each situation is slightly different. The first step always involves making an appointment with the local priest and explaining all the circumstances. Any answer we might give may not take into mind every nuance of the specific situation.

It is possible to get the marriage blessed or "convalidated" so long as it was the first marriage for both them; that much we can tell you.

In general, it is not a very complicated process. Like I said, have them go speak to a priest and start the process.

I'm sure he'll be thrilled to welcome a Catholic back into the fold and welcome a Pentecostal brother and his family in fellowship, as brother Christians.
