Canon Law Webinar: East Meets West: Understanding Marriage Issues Involving Eastern Christians

April 10, 2019, Rev. Alexander Laschuk

The influx of Eastern Christians into territories dominated by the Latin Church continues, with an ever increasing presence of Eastern Christians, both Catholic and non-Catholic. Questions of ascription and jurisdiction directly impact sacramental validity. This seminar will examine some of the common and not so common issues which arise in ecclesiastical administration with a view of helping pastors and diocesan/eparchial administrators cope with the growing (and byzantine) reality of ecclesiastical plurality.
