What is the process for a Catholic-Protestant Wedding?


#1

Father,
I am a protestant and my son is to be married with a girl from Roman Catholic.
Please tell me the procedure to be followed without my son being converted into
Roman Catholic

With prayers

There is no requirement for someone to convert to Catholicism in order to marry a Catholic. However, there are a few things that will need to take place:

  1. Your son will be asked to provide some sort of proof of his baptism. Either a letter/certificate from the church he was baptized in or signed testimony of his parents.

  2. The Catholic party will have to make a sincere promise to do all in his or her power that all offspring will be baptized and brought up in the Catholic Church.

  3. The nonCatholic party will be informed of this promise by the Catholic party.

  4. The nonCatholic party must agree to the Catholic understanding that marriage is permanent until death and open to life.
