Bringing Your Marriage into the Catholic Church

Convalidation is a rite within the Catholic Church allowing a civilly-married couple to enter into full communion within the Catholic Church. Couples seeking this celebration will complete marriage preparation as an engaged couple entering into their first marriage.

To begin the convalidation process, please email Melanie Lauer at or call 303.221.9222.

If you had a previous divorce, please provide a copy of the official annulment decree issued by the diocese. If you did not begin the annulment process, and one is needed, please contact Deacon George Morin at or 303.221.9239.
