TSC 534 New Evangelization and the Marriage Tribunal

Faculty: Rev. Jude Onogbosele, J.C.D. (Profile)


Pope Paul VI noted “frequent situations of dechristianization in our day” (Evangelii Nuntiandi, 52). Civil divorces seem to increase, while the number of Church marriage annulments appears to be decreasing. The number of Lack of Form cases in which couples had married before civil magistrates remains high. Pope Benedict XVI has noted that the evangelizing mission of the Church today “has been particularly challenged by an abandonment of faith” (Ubique et Semper, par. 2). The ultimate goal of this tutorial is to familiarize the canonist with the aspects of canon law and Tribunal practice which might aid in the “New Evangelization.”
