Do we still need marriage tribunals?

In an age when couples live together outside of marriage, marry outside the Church, and remarry without the sacraments, why does the Catholic Church bother with its marriage tribunals?

The Church's marriage or matrimonial tribunals exist to investigate the question of whether individuals are free to marry in the Catholic Church. Tonight, Vancouver's Catholic Forum invites you to explore that question Does the Marriage Tribunal Still Matter? at St. Mary's Church in Vancouver.

Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo, who directs the Archdiocese of Vancouver Marriage Tribunal, will give the presentation at 7 p.m. All are welcome.
