Hi, guys —

I am a practicing Catholic and I want to be married inside a Church. The guy I am going marry is a Christian but not a Catholic. My question is:

  • Do I have to be married in a Catholic Church if I am not having a full Mass at my wedding?

The priest would be the only minister present at the wedding.

  • Is that possible?

Hi, Cathy —

Thanks for the question.

It depends on the Bishop. Most dioceses would allow that with a reason.

Talk to your priest.
