About Blog

I hope that Divorced Catholic Moms will be a source of information regarding divorce and annulment as they pertain to the Catholic church.  There is so much mis-information out there!

I also hope this will be a place for divorced Catholics (or those who are separated) to come for comfort, support and motivation.

A brief word on what this blog is not….

  • a place to debate about, bash or complain about the Catholic church
  • a place to get answers to theological questions
  • a place to complain about life – it’s all right, of course, to vent a bit but the focus here is on the positive.  Yes, we are experiencing, or have experienced in the past, very painful things associated with the destruction of our marriages and the break up of our families. This site is for supporting each other in coming to grips with that and moving on.

I’m not a theologian or in any way an expert on all things Catholic.  I’m simply a Catholic woman and mother who has experienced the hell of divorce, and knows not only that I’m still Catholic but that in the Catholic faith is great strength AND it’s possible to be happy again.  I’m living proof. :)

May God bless you and bring you peace.

I am curious, if a Catholic woman and Catholic man are married outside of the church, if they divorce, can she re-marry in the church and still receive communion?

Thanks

Phil,
It is possible for either of them to remarry inside the church (and be free to receive communion after remarriage in the church) but they first must contact the Tribunal in their Diocese and follow the required steps. From the limited amount I know about these things, I think what is needed in that case is called a “Lack of Form.” I usually suggest speaking with your parish priest or pastor first, however, I’ve heard of erroneous info being given out in these instances, which is why I suggest calling the Tribunal to get information.

I hope that helps.
