  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
Mixed Marriages: A 40-year Retrospective      A growing number of family relationships in the Church are defined by ecumenical and interfaith marriages. Join a wide-ranging discussion of the challenges and opportunities arising from ecumenical and interfaith marriages and families, along with various pastoral initiatives designed to address them. The session will consider the 1970 landmark legislation of Paul VI, Matrimonia mixta reflecting the ecumenical and pastoral values of Vatican II, and will show how its reforms are further reflected in the 1983 Code of Canon Law and the 1993 Ecumenical Directory. This lecture will be presented by James J. Conn, S.J., Ordinary Professor of Canon Law, Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome, and Visiting Professor of Canon Law, STM.
