I was just married a month ago on a civil ceremony. My husband and I are planning our church marriage after a year since we are living abroad and we are still fixing our schedule to go to our home country and have the marriage sanctified in the church with our families by our side?
I am an active servant in the church, singing at the choir for about half of my lifetime. Just yesterday, I was reprimanded to lead in singing the pslam since I had a civil marriage?
Have I committed a grave sin in being civily married? Also, I was told that I should not be receiving the Holy Communion? Have I committed a mortal sin that's why i am deprived of this sacrament?
