Can a Catholic be married by a non-denominational minister?


#1

In the event of a mixed marriage, I know you would need a dispensation if you wish to marry in another church. Would it be possible to get a dispensation to be married by a non-denominational minister?


#2

There are two dispensations that are required: One, to marry a non-Catholic; and, two, to be married in a non-Catholic ritual. The second one covers being married by a non-Catholic minister in a non-Catholic church.
