Mandatory Case Sponsor Retraining on the Motu Proprio

The Metropolitan Tribunal for the Archdiocese will be hosting mandatory Case Sponsor retraining at different locations around the Archdiocese. These sessions will cover the newest changes that Pope Francis promulgated in his Motu Proprio which went into effect on December 8, 2015. The sessions are open to all priests, deacons, current Case Sponsors, and parish personnel interested in the new changes in matrimonial law. Please note that this is not training to become a new Case Sponsor.
