Canon Law


Does Canon Law change/altered overtime, or is it to remain ever the same?




It can and does change.

Canon Law was first codified in 1917.

A new code was promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1983 and it had quite a few changes from the previous code.


There is a copy of cannon law online if you want to look at it…
