Do converts' marriages need convalidation?
A couple is joining the Catholic Church. Previously, they were both Baptist and were married in a Baptist church. Does their marriage have to be convalidated?
Ave Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
