Introduction

 

The Office of Canonical and Tribunal Services is proud to present the following workshops and seminars. A new dawn approaches our Catholic faith as we prepare for the changes to come with the Motu Propio Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus and the implementation of the Pastoral Plan for our Diocese—what a wonderful time to be Catholic! Keeping this in mind, our office has revised the advocacy workshops we have offered in the past and developed a new seminar called “ Pathway to healing for those seeking or have undergone the annulment process and would like more holistic understanding of the process.

 

For questions or more information, please contact the Office of Canonical and Tribunal Services at (512) 949-2478.

The purpose of this seminar is to help participants begin a journey in awareness of the healing process of nullity (annulment) through a straight-to-the-heart response to persons considering or already seeking a declaration of nullity.  The seminar is a time for reflecting on the demise of one's marriage by taking a journey from pain and loneliness to acceptance and healing.  If you have further questions, please contact Deborah Patin at (512) 949-2478.
