Convalidation is a rite within the Catholic Church allowing a civily-married couple to enter into full communion within the Catholic Church. Couples seeking this celebration will complete marriage preparation as an engaged couple entering into their first marriage. Teachings will include Theology, Natural Family Planning (NFP) and Life Skills. If you have been previously married, please be prepared to provide the Office of Marriage & Family Life a copy of the official annulment decree issued by the diocese. If you did not begin the annulment process, and one is needed, please contact the Maryanne Carter at St. Thomas More Catholic Parish at 303-221-9239 or firstname.lastname@example.org
To begin the convalidation process, please email email@example.com or call 303-221-9234.
