Celebration of Marriage during this lock down period in the Salem Diocese
Posted On : 01-05-2020

The celebration of marriage is possible. However, dispensation from the publication of three banns is not possible. The publication of banns can be done through Church’s notice board during this lock down situation. After having done this, I request the parish priests:

i. To get the marriage parties to write on a Rs. 20 Court-fee stamp paper:
ii. that they have not contracted marriage in any form civilly, socially, canonically or secretly
iii. and to attest the above with the signatures of both the bride and the bride-groom in a separate Court-fee stamp paper.
iv. with the signatures of two witnesses.

This procedure shall be applicable only to the lockdown period.
