Archdiocese announces New Information on Church Annulments During the Year of Mercy (and hopefully beyond), at the request of Pope Francis, there will be NO charge for any marriage annulment through the Marriage Tribunal at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. This new policy covers “long” annulments, that can cost from $300.00 to $850.00, and “simple” annulments that cost $50.00 and are handled by the parish priest. If you are not sure whether or not you need a church annulment, or you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to call the rectory. Also, in the lobby of the church on the shelf in front of the bulletin board, there are information flyers describing what is involved in applying for an annulment and the phone number of the Metropolitan Tribunal.
On Sunday, May 22, 2016, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap. will celebrate the Closing Mass. The Mass will take place at 12:30 pm followed by a luncheon.
