TMPS 8019 The Canon Law of Marriage and the Sacraments (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

A study of the canonical norms governing marriage and the sacraments of initiation and healing in the Catholic Church. Special attention is given to the prenuptial preparation of couples for marriage and to the various grounds of nullity for failed marriages. Treatment of marriage and the other sacraments is directed to priests, deacons, and lay persons who administer and assist at them, and to those who prepare the faithful for their valid, lawful, and fruitful reception. Consideration is given to the theological basis of the law and its appropriate pastoral application.
