After a marriage has been celebrated, the marriage is to be recorded in the marriage register of the place of marriage ( cf., canon 1121 §1). The marriage is also to be noted in the baptismal registers in which the baptism of the spouses has been recorded. If a spouse did not contract marriage in the parish in which the person was baptized, the pastor of the place of the celebration is to send notice of the marriage as soon as possible to the pastor of the place of the baptism ( cf., canon 1122).

For any questions or inquiries, please contact the Office of the Metropolitan Tribunal at [email protected],  or 314-792-7400.
