I am an Episcopalian. My daughter is going to be married in an Episcopal church this summer. Her fiance is French and nominally Catholic (as most French are). He asked me about convalidation. I have a Jesuit friend who can help, but as this priest is not American, he may not know the particular practices of the US church.
Here is my question: My daughter and future son-in-law reside within one Catholic diocese, and the church where the wedding will take place is in another Catholic diocese. Which one has jurisdiction?
Oh, also, because he is French, he has to await a fiance visa, so although the wedding planning continues apace, he has to await the granting of a visa by the US Embassy, so he will probably be here about 45 days prior to the wedding. This means that marriage preparation in the Episcopal Church needs to be done in a short time along with whatever things are required by the Catholic church.
Thank you in advance for your help.
