Diocesan Tribunal Accompanies Catholics through Annulment Process

In the Catholic Church, few topics are more sensitive – and perhaps more misunderstood – than annulments.

An annulment is a declaration of invalidity by a Catholic Tribunal that a previous marriage was not valid according to the teachings of the Church.

In the Diocese of Harrisburg, the mission of the Tribunal is to reflect and experience Christ in the ministry of justice through the compassionate and equitable application of Church law, to protect the rights and dignity of each person without discrimination, and to provide an opportunity for healing.
